A log of IP changes via DDNS?

Post by hurleyp » Sun Dec 16, 2018 11:11 pm

I have a dynamic IP that my ISP changes often, but not on a regular basis. Sometimes my IP changes after a couple of days, sometimes after a few weeks. MyDNS of myQNAPcloud handles the updates, but I would like to get a better idea of the frequency of the IP changes. Is there a log of IP changes somewhere, or can I enable a log?

Thanks

Hey Paul. :)

Yes, detected changes to your WAN IP are recorded in the QTS System Logs.

Navigate to them via the QTS UI, then ensure you're looking at the 'System Event Logs' tab, then use the event filtering box at the top-right and enter some text like "updated wan".

This will show only the events where DDNS was updated with your WAN IP.
