Free DNS server ??
Got a pal with a Zmodo security system, the "free DNS" service with it lasts for 30 days,, GEE Thanks for nothing..
Are there any free DNS servers,services that the system can use to alert his cell phone and view live video from his house ?
Thanks in advance

Try this: FreeDNS - Free DNS - Dynamic DNS - Static DNS subdomain and domain hosting
Make sure you download an update client. Dynamic DNS clients

Taxman's link would work for 'dialing' back to the LAN remotely, but I'm not sure what you're talking about with regards to using DNS to alert his mobile - but the system I have in my other house connects to the phone line to call whatever number/s I chose to include in the setup menus.....

The system was advertised as having "Free" viewing of live video from his home when the system was tripped..
The link given by Tech Support was
Then further study showed "Port Forwarding" as necessary.
Clicking his router, a Belkin, showed "Virtural Servers"
Sadly, I'm back at home on dial-up and cannot run the heavy Flash Video and be more accurate..
Anyway, it was some garbage regarding a fee based DNS service.
Thanks for the feedback, if this trivial bit of info does not clarify enough, I'll get back over at his house and read more on his DSL connection.

I'll have a look at that when I'm on a computer...my BlackBerry is only the same speed as dial-up anyway...

NortonDNS looks pretty cool. I especially like the malware prevention sense I'm a huge malware prevention kinda guy. I am using opendns in conjunction with NortonDNS. Now, I'm a little confused about the client. The client says that it will change the computer's DNS server, but I don't need to do that sense I have them configured in the router as it is handed out via DHCP. Does the client update NortonDNS as to a new IP address I may get? Sometimes I like to manually change my own external IP address. I do this with the MAC address clone feature in the router, and a quick reboot of the modem and walla, a new IP address.
The cool part is my keywords that I have setup in OpenDNS still work even though the first DNS server is Norton DNS!
BTW- I tried to ping NortonDNS's first DNS server and it fails, but the second one works. Just a heads up.

I didnt use the client, I just put in the two dns servers into my network card settings.
Malwareblacklist.com seems like a cool site! I wonder if there is a way to incorporate that into my work network.
Btw taxman I did a search on the first link on the malwareblacklist site which is this:
Norton Safe Web, from Symantec - report for innolearn.de
If you notice, the infection isnt in the same location in the norton site and the malwareblacklist site. Not sure how norton or the blacklist site checks this and how often.
Another site to check the "rating" of a web page is this: BrightCloud, Inc. - Hosted Security Services
Some of the sites I search in norton on that blacklist didnt come up with a rating at all.
September 1st, 2011, 08:21 PM #10I just triesd a bunch of the sites listed here: MalwareBlacklist.com - Powered by: ParetoLogic Inc. and they don't get blocked
Hey Guys, don't sweat it too much, he's put the phone deal on the back burner for a bit..
