Read and edit /etc/duckdns.d/default for more info on how to use the script!

@Nitroretro, would it make sense to add curl as a dependency? It's not part of the "base" ArchLinux package group, so it wouldn't hurt to list it explicitly ;)

Another small improvement: returns an IPv6 address only if the "" domain is resolved as IPv6. To force curl to do that, you can use the '-6' parameter like this: curl -6 -s "$IPV6_URL". For the IPv4 address retrieval, you can use the '-4' parameter like: curl -4 -s "$IPV4_URL"

Thanks for mantaining, your script has been really useful!

The original timer service didn't work properly on my machines. To be specific, after every reboot the timer service didn't activate (even after enabling it through systemctl enable duckdns.timer) and I had to restart it manually after every reboot.

This timer service fixed my problem:

Description=Update DuckDNS domain addresses every 10 minutes



PS: This may doesn't seem like a problem (because the timer will run every 10 minutes) but in duckdns.service it would be smart to add, so that the script won't run before the network isn't online and I would add the service to

So the duckdns.service would look something like this:

Description=Update DuckDNS domain addresses
