What is dynamic DNS feature in BBNA and how do I configure dynamic DNS?

The BBNA supports inbound load balancing and inbound link fail-over via Dynamic DNS (DDNS).  This feature allows management of inbound traffic (traffic which is originally initiated from within the Internet). This feature is configured via the ADVANCED tab. It is disabled by default and two modes are supported currently through the Dynamic DNS service at dyndns.org and changeip.com respectively. To properly configure this feature, a service account should first be set up with afraid.org, dyndns.org, or changeip.com. Details of the service are available from these service providers. Once the service account has been set up the corresponding mode can be selected by clicking on the status entry (“Disabled” or “Enabled”) for “Dynamic DNS” in the configuration table. The various options will be displayed, and the BBNA Management Interface will then prompt for a Username, Password, and Hostname, which should be provided by the Dynamic DNS provider. By clicking on “Apply” the Dynamic DNS feature is configured accordingly.

Note: DDNS is a service that is hosted by companies with no connection to Mushroom Networks.  Mushroom Networks makes no warranty as to the reliability of these services. For mission critical applications, it is strongly advised that the reliability of the service used be considered before deployment.
