I need to setup DDNS Server in our premises. Please guide me how I can go ahead like any pre-requisites for this.

About DDNS: As you might be aware that Many broadband access do not have fixed IP address. DDNS allows the domain name data held in a name server to be updated in real time. Common use for this is in allowing an Internet domain name to be assigned to a computer with a varying (dynamic) IP address.

We are the IP & Analog Camera distributor company. Many of our end customer do not have Static IP with them. They normally used free DDNS service provided by manufacturer. If we host our own DDNS serice & offer as a free Service along with Cameras then it will be value add service for us to promote product more aggressively in market. – Samir Jul 16 '12 at 13:45
It's not going to add much value if you need someone else to set it up. What are you going to do when you need to troubleshoot? – ceejayoz Jul 16 '12 at 14:05

Are you expecting to use RFC 2136 as your update protocol, or some custom http based interface like no-ip/dyndns? If RFC 2136 works for you then all you have to do is setup Bind and enable dynamic updates.

Yes. RFC2136...Like DDNS will be setup in my office. Then IP or Analog Camera users will use my DDNS service to view the Camera from the Internet using registered host name from my DDNS server (to view the Cameras which got installed at users office). It will be beneficial for those users who do not have Static internet IP from SP – Samir Jul 17 '12 at 5:12
