This driver enables you to automatically update your hostname on selected Dynamic DNS providers whenever your external IP address changes. The following providers are currently supported: 'Dyn', 'no-ip' and 'Dynu'.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This driver is NOT intended to facilitate remote access to the Control4 system using port forwarding. Always use 4Sight for this purpose.
These Dynamic DNS providers supply your clients with a unique hostname providing a simplified and reliable remote access to the client's installed devices outside of the Control4 environment. This driver ensures that the remote hostname on your selected provider always points to the right IP address even if this address changes due to power outages, hardware replacements, etc. This Control4 driver offers a reliable alternative to having an update program running on a PC or when the client's router does not support this functionality.
The driver uses secure (SSL) communications with the update servers and the password is masked for enhanced protection.
For more information on these providers, visit dyn.com, no-ip.com or dynu.com.
