What is it?
This is a command line utility for updating dynamic DNS records managed by DNS
How does it work?
The utility makes HTTPS calls to a RESTful service hosted by DNS Made Easy. See
http://oldcp.dnsmadeeasy.com/enterprisedns/ddnstechspec.html for information on
the communication specification.
The utility can be used behind NAT because it determines your public IP address
using a "reflector" hosted by DNS Made Easy. The utilities call out to the
"reflector" which simply echos back the IP address from which the request
originated. That address is then used in the subsequent DDNS update.
Proxy Users: If you need to use this utility behind a proxy server you can set
the HTTP and HTTPS proxy servers using standard Go environment variables. See
https://golang.org/pkg/net/http/#ProxyFromEnvironment But be warned that the
proxies public IP address will be used in your DDNS updates.
