Running Duiadns on Tomato Firmware Router

Method 1 - Web Interface

The first choice and the easiest one is to use tomato's web interface (ipv4 only support). Go to Basic -> DDNS then choose from the dropdown menu Custom URL (see the picture below):

Use your hostname and MD5 password to create the Custom URL (see an example below):

Method 2 - IPv6 for LAN Feature

If you want to use IPv6 for LAN feature, first you need to download the daemon from duiadns download page. It is a good ideea to download it to your PC first and extract the duiadns.bin daemon from the archive since it might be difficult to do that on the tomato router itself.

Make sure you have a non-volatile piece of memory (USB or NVRAM/jffs) on your router where to upload the daemon. If you put it in a temporary directory like /tmp/root/ it will be erased after reboot. If your router doesn't have USB support then you should activate JFFS partition. You can activate it on your tomato router from Administrator -> JFFS, click Format / Erase and reboot the router (see the picture below):

Upload duiadns.bin daemon from your PC to your router. Make sure SSH Daemon is activated (Administrator -> Admin access) then upload the daemon to your router using scp from linux or winscp from windows. Here's an example from linux (duiadns.bin is the name of the daemon, is the ip address of the tomato router in this example):

[]# scp duiadns.bin root@

Once the daemon is uploaded to /jffs directory, make it executable and start it like this:

root@home:/tmp/home/root# cd /jffs
root@home:/jffs# chmod 755 duiadns.bin
root@home:/jffs# ./duiadns.bin -b
Hostname: your hostname
Password: your password

The last step is to make sure duiadns.bin daemon runs after reboot. Go to Administrator -> Scripts add the command /jffs/duiadns.bin -b in the Init tab then hit the button Save (see the picture below):
