Sorry if this isn’t the most correct place for this thread.
Since it has to do with updating dynamic DNS via a script I thought DNS would be as good a place as any.
So I’m using a script called zoneclient.py to keep my DNS up to date (If I can get it working reliably I’ll save $50 per month on my Internet bill by killing my 2nd static IP line coming into my home).
The command I’m calling is:
/usr/bin/python /Volumes/Data/Users/david/Documents/zoneclient/zoneclient.py -q -d /Volumes/Data/Users/david/Documents/zoneclient -r http://getip.com tknospdr zone-edit password technospider.com,mail.technospider.com
This works interactively via Terminal, and I’m pretty sure it’s working as expected via cron as well. My problem is I want to do it the “correct Apple way” and have it running via launchd. So I created this file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Label</key> <string>com.david.zoneclient</string> <key>UserName</key> <string>david</string> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>/usr/bin/python</string> <string>/Volumes/Data/Users/david/Documents/zoneclient/zoneclient.py</string> <string>-q</string> <string>-d</string> <string>/Volumes/Data/Users/david/Documents/zoneclient</string> <string>-r</string> <string>http://getip.com</string> <string>tknospdr</string> <string>AAZ-Bd3-4Xe-qox</string> <string>technospider.com,mail.technospider.com</string> </array> <key>StartInterval</key> <integer>900</integer> </dict> </plist>
But this is NOT working from what I gather. Anyone see an obvious fault in this script? It’s really bugging me that I can’t get this working properly.
