Dynamic DNS (Domain Name Service) is a method of keeping a domain name linked to a changing (dynamic) IP address. With most Cable and DSL connections, you are assigned a dynamic IP address and that address is used only for the duration of that specific connection. To properly configure the DDNS feature follow the steps below:

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the DI-LB604 into the address bar (default is 192.168.0.1).

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3: Click on the Tools tab at the top and then click on DDNS on the lefthand side.

Step 4: For service, select your DDNS service provider from the drop-down and configure the following:

  • Server Name – The name of the DDNS server.
  • User Name – Enter the username for your DDNS account.
  • Password – The password for your DDNS account.
  • Verify Password – Re-enter the password to prevent any typing errors.
  • Domain Name – The complete hostname to be updated.

Additional Settings:

  • Enable Wildcard: If enabled, all subdomains of your domain name map to your current IP address. If disabled, no subdomains of your domain name have an IP address.
  • Enable Backup MX: If enabled, all subdomains of your domain name map to your current IP address. If disabled, no subdomains of your domain name have an IP address.
  • Mail Exchanger: Define mail exchanger for the domain name. If omitted, the mail exchanger will be set to the domain name.

WAN Port Binding: If bound on the WAN port, the domain name will be mapped to the IP address of the WAN port.

Step 5: Click on Apply to save your settings.
