    "does exactly what it says and does it well"

    October 9, 2009  |   By jim_ferris

    Version: DirectUpdate 4.6.1

    Pros

    works thru hardware firewalls, even MS ISA2000
    can be configured with all IP detector sites
    will update to most dynamic dns manager sites
    can send update notices via email
    can perform other actions after an IP update
    very small actual footprint

    Cons

    a bit difficult to control when it updates so abusive reports can happen.
    need to watch update frequency settings.

    "Outstanding piece of software"

    January 11, 2004  |  

    Version: DirectUpdate 3.6

    Summary

    I've been using DirectUpdate of various version for about a year and half, and v 3.6.3 since its release, first on a Windows 2000 Server and now on a Windows 2003 Server. Not a single crash, runs as a service and is extremly easy to setup and use. I can even use the email notification feature with MS Exchange.

    Web based remote admin console is basic and only allows the adding and deletion of domains. Would be nice to see more functionality to the web based admin included in future releases.

    "Great little utility that does it all and more"

    September 29, 2003  |  

    Version: DirectUpdate 3.6

    Summary

    I just download and tested out the apps which works great. Did a test email notification and it send it to my yahoo account. Too bad it's not a freeware but I managed to crack the program so that's a plus!

    "Best realy free soft for Dynamic dns updates"

    April 3, 2003  |  

    Version: DirectUpdate 3.6

    Summary

    Dear all. You don't have to buy it because it's freeware. This is the only tool that can update your dynamic address to your own domain name if you register free at zoneedit.
