I have configured ddclient to update dyndns and when I type ddclient
-ip my.ip.add.ress, the address gets updated at dyndns in mintes but I
want to make ddclient do this automatically. I tried a number of
options but ddclient fails to get my (ppp0) ip. What option do I need
to make ddclient find my ip correctly and update dyndns? I can't find
my ip in syslog.
