This guide will help you setup Dynamic DNS (DDNS) with your Gateway.
- If the Gateway is using a private WAN IP address ( 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, or 172.16.x.x), this router may be under a multi-layer NAT network. The DDNS service is not able to work under this environment.
- If you do not know your current public IP address you can find it by going to www.portchecktool.com.
To configure DDNS:
1. Open your browser to log in to the gateway.
2. Navigate to Application > DDNS and Click ADD button to create a DDNS service.
3. Let's take the example of dyndns.org and the parameters are described as follows.
Service Provider: Select the correnct Service Provider from the drop-down list, here included are alibaba dns, dynv6.com, dyndns.org, Oray.net and 3322.org in Gateway.
Enable: To " Yes" to activate this function.
Domain: Enter your routable host name as defined in your DDNS account.
Account & Password: Enter your DDNS account credentials.( If you don't have a DDNS account, click the link http://www.dyndsn.org to register. For more information about these details, refer to your provider's website.）
4. Each time your dynamic public IP for WAN is changed, the IP address will be updated to DDNS service provider automatically.
5. For remote user access, you must also configure your Gateway for Port Mapping. If you don't know how to set up port mapping, see this link How do I add the port mapping rule on Gateway?.
6. Finally, Use this URL in a browser to remotely access the Gateway.
