OpenNIC Whitelist Updater
Script to keep the Whitelist API (http://wiki.opennicproject.org/API_Whitelist) updated with your current IP address.
Please be aware that this script makes requests to non-whitelist OpenNIC DNS servers to get the IP address of OpenNIC's API server. Several servers are queried and the most common result is used. Please see
/etc/opennic-update/opennic-update.conf for details on the configuration.
install.sh for details.
Install by running the following command:
wget -O install.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/CalumMc/OpenNIC-Whitelist-Updater/master/install.sh && sudo bash ./install.sh
Or alternatively download
install.sh and run it as root using a method of your choice.
Note: please check the URL first so you are aware of what the script does.
Once installed, the daemon can be controlled by using the commands:
sudo /etc/init.d/opennic-update start sudo /etc/init.d/opennic-update stop sudo /etc/init.d/opennic-update status
/etc/opennic-update/opennic-update.conf file can be edited, although rerunning the install script will reconfigure the daemon.
