       This  manual page documents briefly the ez-ipupdate dynamic DNS client.


       ez-ipupdate follows the  usual  GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options starting with two dashes (‘-’).

              string to send as your ip address

       -b, --cache-file <file>
              file to use for caching the ipaddress

       -c, --config-file <file>
              configuration  file,  almost  all  arguments  can be given with:
              <name>[=<value>] to see a list of possible config  commands  try
              "echo help | ez-ipupdate -c -"

       -d, --daemon
              run as a daemon periodicly updating if necessary

       -e, --execute <command>
              shell command to execute after a successful update

       -f, --foreground

              URI to send updates to

       -h, --host <host>
              string to send as host parameter

       -i, --interface <iface>
              which interface to use

       -L, --cloak_title <host>
              some stupid thing for DHS only

       -m, --mx <mail exchange>
              string to send as your mail exchange

       -M, --max-interval <# of sec> max time in between updates

       -N, --notify-email <email>
              address to send mail to if bad things happen

       -o, --offline
              set to off line mode

       -p, --resolv-period <sec>
              period to check IP if it can’t be resolved

       -R, --run-as-user <user>
              change  to  <user>  for  running,  be  ware  that this can cause
              problems with handeling SIGHUP properly if that user can’t  read
              the  config  file.  also  it can’t write it’s pid file to a root

       -Q, --run-as-euser <user>
              change to effective <user> for running, this is NOT  secure  but
              it does solve the problems with run-as-user and config files and
              pid files.
