    Fulvio, first of all, great job with ZeroShell. It rocks!! I did however notice that DNS-O-MATIC is not in the Dynamic DNS list. I currently have it added as a cronjob, but I think it would be great to have DNS-O-MATIC added as an entry in the listt. I don’t think it would be too hard to implement. (I can update the code if you like, test it, and then get it back to you. I would just need to know where the Dynamic DNS config files are located on the filesystem)

    If any one else needs DNS-O-MATIC support in the meantime follow the steps below.

    1.- In web interface of Zeroshell go to Setup
    2.- Click on Startup/Cron
    3.- At the bottom of the pop up window click “add job”
    4.- Give the job a name.
    5.- In the main Text Area paste the following code (replace password and username accordingly):

    wget https://username:password@updates.dnsomatic.com/nic/update

    6.- Select the time intervals for running the job.
    7.- DNS-O-MATIC should now be updating. You are good to go!!


    I tested the somewhat more generic code and it’s work:

    wget --spider --http-user="username" --http-passwd="password" "https://updates.dnsomatic.com/nic/update?hostname=myhostname"

    This form permit special chars in username or in password (“@” by example). The –spider solve the r/o error in job runs.
