Hej hej,

when I used this script my internal IP was submitted to dynv6. So I updated line 20:

v4_address=$(curl http://my.ip.fi);

Once I did it this way, my external IPv4 was sent properly. Indeed, curl needs to be installed on server for that reason and network needs to be fully established.

Kind regards

Hello,

I get the error promt "/bin/sh: 0: Illegal option -" executing the script on my Raspberry Pi.
How can I fix this?

author considered manual change from "global" to "ppp0" on line 20 in linked article https://odnkz.blogspot.com/2018/09/ddns-xiaomi-mi-3g-router-padavan.html

Using curl is not correct because primary IP source is local device. When you use "curl http://my.ip.fi" you get the last registered IP address on the DynDNS service. This contradicts the purpose of the script - to inform the DynDNS service of the new local IP address.

I want to thank you (@pulsar256, @nephilim75). Thanks to your efforts, I have created a docker image that can be used to update multiple zones of Dynv6. Alternatively, the included scripts can be used separately or in a combined version of the script. However, I have taken the approach to leave the script unchanged as described here (to be updateable).
