Adding a dynamicdns.org Domain To OpenWRT Barrier Breaker
September 3, 2014

So you’re running OpenWRT version 14.07 (Barrier Breaker). And you’ve got a dynamically updating domain name from dynamicdns.org.
You want to configure your router to update your dynamic domain address to that of your WAN interface.
First things first, install the luci-app-ddns package on your router. Then reboot your router and log into the LuCI web interface.
Next navigate to the Services -> Dynamic DNS page:
Navigate to the Services > Dynamic DNS page
Enter the dynamic DNS provider and account details
Then enter the details of your dynamic domain name, your username and password.
Set the source of the IP address to interface and the interface to be your WAN interface (in my case my WAN interface is PPPoE).
That’s all there is to it!
If you are using an older version of OpenWRT you may wish to create a script to update the dynamic DNS. If this is the case then please visit this blog article.
