OpenWRT – Configure Dynamic DNS

March 16th, 2015 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

  What is Dynamic DNS:

Dynamic DNS (DDNS or DynDNS) is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name System (DNS), often in real time, with the active DNS configuration of its configured hostnames, addresses or other information.

Configure Dynamic DNS in OpenWRT:

Pre-requisites:

  1. This post is written based on OpenWrt Barrier Breaker 14.07

Steps:

  1. Login to your OpenWRT Admin (by default is 192.168.1.1)
  2. Select Systems -> Software
  3. Under Filter, type in “luci-app-ddns”. Click Find Package.
  4. openwrt-ddns1
  5. Then click on “Available Packages”. Next to Luci-app-ddns, click Install.
  6. Once Luci-app-ddns is installed, you should see a new option called “Services” between the “System” and “Network”
  7. Select Services ->  Dynamic DNS
  8. Define the dynamic DNS configuration parameters as per the screenshot and click Save
  9. openwrt-ddns2
  10. Lastly, go to System -> Startup.
