In this video we’ll take a look at How to Install Duck DNS on OpenMediaVault 5.

Most connections to the internet are through a dynamic external IP address which changes quite often (weekly or even daily). This can make it very difficult to connect to home services from an external computer.

To get around this, Duck DNS is a provider of what is known as a DDNS (Dynamic DNS) service we provide a public DNS server that anyone can get a subdomain and use one of our provided scripts to update their record(s).
So instead of trying to remember an IP address, you can use a domain name that is kept up-to-date by a computer at home

Once this is done, periodically (usually every 5 minutes), the computer running the client, tells our central system (via a HTTPS post), to update the record with its latest external IP.
