    Can someone please advise as to the settings that must be made via the gui in order to get dyndns working in this router?

    Hi Robbie,

    Thanks for your post!

    I have never seen this done on a PIX but it may be possible. I read about it in the latest PIXOS manual. It does cover Dynamic DNS but, it appears to me, that it supports it only in conjuction with using DHCP for local LAN clients.

    Here is the link-

    In other words, it cannot pull an IP address from your ISP and update a dyndns provider - as far as I can tell.

    There is always the chance that I could be wrong. If you find out that it can be done, please correct me.

    I do know that this can be done on a Cisco IOS router now, starting in IOS 12.3-

    Thank you for the post!
