Received DVR last week.  Pretty impressed with it.  I plan to install in remote location in another state.  My domain is registered with dnsExit. So I naturally setup a sub domain under them.  The URL context root is different than those for the supported DDNS types.  So I tried using the Private type.  This presented several issues.  First no field for context root or URL.  Second no fields for other parameters.  As an experment I just pointed to one my my local servers to see what is being sent.  It appears in only opens the port with no HTTP header or data.  This was verified using a nework sniffer.


I did setup a temp solution using free version  However, this must be registered every 30 days.  I don't have an issue at home since I have a static IP.  It's the principal here. Don't want to pay for another DDNS service. A last resort solution would be to use one of the supported types and point the server to mine.  I would write a Java servlet to send an updated URL to dnsExit.


Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

The Private service is not for the end user. It is designed for the distributor to have their own service added to the existing firmware by the manufacturer of the DVR. We can provide you with a free single account of our DDNS service at . Please contact our tech support team to get assistance. Email for more information.
