The tutorial below is only for configuring the dynamic DNS client in the Air Port devices to use Dyn.
Dyn had been experimenting with Zero Configuration Networking capabilities, including support for dynamic DNS updates from Apple networking devices.
First, let’s make sure you have all of the requirements for dynamic DNS in the Air Port in place: Note on Apple Bonjour: If you’re looking to make Wide Area Bonjour, DNS Service Discovery, and NAT-PMP work with Dyn, you may be interested in this article instead.
The update improves the security of the base stations, and the latest firmware version number is bumped up to 7.8.1.
Apple notes that the security update is recommended for all above mentioned base station users to download.
Your Dyn Standard DNS zone requires a couple of special records to enable these devices to find where and how to update Dyn with your information.
Now that your Dyn Standard DNS zone is configured to receive dynamic updates from Apple devices, you can use the Apple Air Port Utility (v5.4.2 to v5.5.3) to configure dynamic DNS in the Apple device.Note: as of version 6.1 of the Airport Utility and 7.6.1 router firmware, the Apple Airport Extreme and Time Capsule routers no longer offer the ability to configure wide-area bonjour.This has effectively caused these Apple routers to no longer support sending updates to Dyn Standard DNS.You must use Dyn Standard DNS with your own domain name for this to work properly.If you intend to use our Dyn DNS Pro services with an Air Port or Time Capsule, you must use one of our Dyn Update Clients.The entire Air Port team was shifted to other departments including i Phone, i Pad, and Apple TV.
