Dynamic DNS and Namecheap

Dynamic DNS service for Namecheap with Wildcard-Domains is not working, as ‘@’ and ‘*’ are not allowed as part of domain names. A simple solution ist a little modification to providers.py

Replace: host, domain = self.hostname.split(".", 1)
With: host, domain = self.username.split(".", 1)

After this modification domainname can be set without * or @. The complete domainname including * or @ has to be entered in the username-field.

Would it be possible to add this little modification to the ipfire-repository?



I have no idea what the change does, but of course you can submit a patch as explained here:


This should be reported to the Bugzilla … there is a section for the DDNS Client…
