[GL.iNet] Upgrading DDNS Service

We are glad to upgrade our DDNS service. This service is still Beta so all feedback is welcomed.

  • Real Dynamic DNS service and it is available for GL.inet devices.
  • Service is disabled by default. You can enable and disable any time.
  • You can enable http or ssh access of your router.

How to enable and use this service:

Firmware 2.x can use this service. You need to enable WAN access. We may suspend the DDNS for firmware 2.x after releasing all 3.x firmware for all models. The following guide is only on firmware 3.x.

Note: You have to upgrade to firmware v3.010 in order to have DDNS in firmware 3.x. Please check instructions below.

Note: To enable DDNS service, please check the docs here : https://docs.gl-inet.com/en/3/app/ddns/. You need to go to Applications->Plug-ins, update package list and then install gl-cloud-ui.

Note about firmware upgrade:
When you upgrade your firmware from 3.010 to newer version later. You may need to install gl-cloud-ui again to use this service. We may embed this service to newer versions.

Here is the screenshot of Web Admin Panel.

About Usability and Security:

  • Firmware 2.x can also use this service. If you use firmware 3.x please upgrade to firmware 3.010 and newer.
  • This is a real dynamic DNS service. It only resolve your DNS to your router’s public IP. Enabling this service doesn’t mean or ensure that your router is exposed to the Internet.
  • If your device is behind a firewall, you need to set up port-forward or DMZ on your ISP router.
  • Not all ISP allows for setting up a server. So your ISP may blocked your server so there is no way to access it from the Internet using DDNS. Most Carrier networks doesn’t allow setting up a server. So if you use MiFi and connected to 3G/4G network, you are likely not able to use this service. If you want to access the router anywhere you may need to consider GL.iNet GoodCloud service.
  • Enabling HTTP service is not secure as HTTP is not encrypted. Use at your own risk.
  • You need to take care of your own server security. This is just a domain resolving service.

Dear Mr.leo:
I have bought the latest production-gl wireless rounter mode: B1300. It support both 2.4G&5G. Is there any ddns software suport it?
I am the new player, can you tell me how to achive this rounter support 802.11.R like the mesh net with lancable. (roaming) thanks.

We are working on migrate B1300 to v3.0 firmware now, it is available in the end of this month.

For 802.11R issue, you should create a new topic as it is nothing with DDNS. B1300 is based on QSDK, its mesh network is based on WIFI-SON technology, not 802.11r. If you want to use 802.11r protocol, you have to use the official OpenWRT firmware, and refer to [OpenWrt Wiki] B.A.T.M.A.N. / batman-adv.

thanks a lot hope to use the software in the end of year.

Thank you for your suggestion, we will consider DDNS to support IPV6 in the future.
Family users in China should get a IP in IPV4 which changes occasionally.
https://www.ipip.net will help you to check your IP.
With the IPV6 becomes more and more popular, ISP doesn’t need to change your IP any more.

从18年开始,大陆大部分省份家用光纤用户(移动 电信)已经能够自动获取到/64段的ipv6地址并用于向下分配(小部分旧光猫可能需要手动开启v6),全部4G用户能够获取到v6地址,v4基本全是内网动态ip,v6是动态外网ip。

HI Folks,

I was trying to Disable DDNS and it seems like it is not actually being disabled though the interface in the router says it is disabled any idea if there is a bug ?

Current Version


Why you say “it seems like it is not actually being disabled”?
Actually disable DDNS is easy, click the switch button then click the Apply button, that is it.


disabled means it is not checking/updating your new IP.
the ddns will still redirect to last updated IP if that’s what you mean.
