Update Your FreeDNS.afraid.org Dynamic DNS and specify IP Address

0 comments

When running behind proxies or VPNs, the Dynamic DNS auto-updater in your router or computer isn't always able to detect the correct IP address upon update.

This will cause the dynamic DNS to point to addresses which won't route the data request back to the right IP

In order to remedy this, I've created a little Python script which fetches the correct WAN IP from the router and updates FreeDNS with the right IP.

Where can you find your token? Visit the Dynamic DNS page and copy the link for "Direct URL".

Once that's all done, just find a good time to run the script. I find that running it upon startup works well for me.

At time of writing, I tested this with the latest version of Virtualbox v4.3.22 and Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 9926.

Correct steps to failure

  • Set up the 32-bit virtual machine

  • Select the 32-bit technical preview ISO.

  • Start it up and watch it burn.

  • BOOM!

Your PC needs a restart.

Please hold down the power button.

Error Code: 0x0000000A

Parameters:

0xFFD00000

0x000000FF

0x00000003

0x8158B5E3

The fix for it

This baffled me for some time because I thought VirtualBox was buggy or something. Oddly enough, telling Virtualbox to expect a 64-bit operating system will fix it.

I'm not sure if this is a bug within Windows 10 (because it worked fine in previous technical preview releases) or a bug with VirtualBox. Either way, hope it gets fixed before Windows 10 gets released!
