       A perl based client to update your dynamic IP address at (or
       other dynamic DNS services such as Hammernode, Zoneedit or EasyDNS),
       thus allowing you and others to use a fixed hostname
       ( to access your machine. This client supports both
       the dynamic and (near) static services, MX setting, and alternative
       host. It caches the address, and only attempts the update if the
       address actually changes.

       For usage information please run ddclient -help until this manpage is
