Simple. Does what it says.

Caveat: Your password is stored in cleartext. Not a big deal, perhaps, but you should know about it.

I use this application to administer some far away Macs. Installation is very easy - and it works on 5 machines (OSX 10.2 & 10.3) now without problems! Just make sure thast if the Mac is within a local network you will need to configure your router to route the ports to the machine (I use ssh so I route port 22).

Used this application in Jag with no problems. This does not work in Panther. Applications runs, but does not update the DNS service providers.

"This app SUCKS!!!"

 |  Version: DNSUpdate 2.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using this app for a LONG time now and every time I go out of town it updates my DYNDNS with the new IP and I can not hit my machine at my house. Since this damn app runs so well I forget I have it and forget to turn it off when I go out of town! :-) Actually, I am kidding about the application sucking...but not about my problem. The app is fantastic, so much so that I always forget it is there. There has been a suggestion of making it a menuling and I think this would be a great idea. The menuling can give you an option to disable (by selecting or unselecting) services and show the last time they were updated. The menu icon could indicate if the deamon is running and in the menu you could add an "Update Now" option as has been suggested. These are the only improvements I might suggest. The app is simple (for the user) and works flawlessly!
Thanks for building such a GREAT free app. Since it is free I don't expect the above improvements, but if you get bored one day and feel like writing some code, please consider the above suggestions. :-)
For those running under one of the supported DYNDNS services, don't think just click the convenient download button now.
