I have been following this guide on setting up VPN on my pi. Part of the steps are to set up and configure a dynamic dns service. I have created several accounts across multiple platforms. No Ip and dynamicdns are two to name. Below is an output of my ddclient.conf file, it connects fine on both dynamic dns sites.
daemon=60 # check every 60 seconds syslog=yes # log update msgs to syslog mail=root # mail all msgs to root mail-failure=root # mail failed update msgs to root pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid # record PID in file. ssl=yes # use ssl-support. Works with # ssl-library use=web, web=myip.dnsdynamic.com # get ip from server. server=www.dnsdynamic.org # default server login=YOURUSERNAME # default login password=YOURPASSWORD # default password server=www.dnsdynamic.org, \ protocol=dyndns2 \ MYDOMAIN.dnsdynamic.COM
My issue is that in this article, they illustrate how to verify if your pi is connecting over SSL. When I run
sudo ddclient -verbose -debug -noquiet -query
it shows connecting over HTTP vs HTTPS or SSL for each site. I verified that ssl was installed by running
sudo apt-get install ssh libio-socket-ssl-perl
Any ideas on if it's connecting via ssl or how I can force it to? I have ran through this article too. I did see that ddclient stated that it would use SSL if available, I'm wondering if this is a limitation to using a free dynamicdns site or if I'm overlooking something. The articles made it appear as though the sites I'm using like no ip and dnsdynamic support SSL.
