Now, click the DDNS option underneath Network. Once inside DDNS, select the Enable box to make sure it is on.

There will be four available DDNS options inside of the first dropdown menu (Quick DDNS, Dyndns DDNS, NO-IP DDNS, and CN99 DDNS). The most popular option is Dyndns DDNS.

After Dyndns DDNS is selected, the Host IP will need to be added. If you choose to go with one of our services, we use TechPro DDNS. To add this, simply type in the Host IP field.

You can also add this to your mobile phone’s application to prevent a situation where your IP changes your IP address.
