 Blackdown works well with Freenet? I heard one bad report...

This was not perhaps my report? I had serious trouble some time ago
(using blackdown on linux ...). But it turned out that there was a
change in the way the freenet.conf file was interpreted. Took me some
time to realize that the old OutputBandwidthLimit was in kByte and the
new one in Bytes. And an OutputBandwidthLimit of 4 Bates is just to slow
for every node ;-)

  Unfortunately sometimes the providers put in some NAT boxes or a proxy
  that prevents this system from working properly. So there is, in most
  cases, the possibility to submit the IP that you are using.
 
 Yikes. Assuming you use a non-standard port for the update, there's
 little point in having a dyndns if you can't connect direct to dyndns,
 as your connections will get blocked anyway.

This was ages ago. The service that I used then had a update-mechanism
using http. Unfortunately I just realized that there was a problem when
I was on vacation for a few weeks and had no way of finding my Computer
with all my mails :-(
Ok, geek-trouble not beeing able to read mail in vacation ;-)

 SO it is better to get a dyndns account and i got that, but now as
 always on linux i got really sidetracked.
 
 So i have an account and the ddclient, of course setting up ddclient
 seems to be another complicated task ..router settings etc
 
 Is it ok if i ask for help on that list here, or is it OFF-Topic ?
 
 I always have the same problem: How can i test at which point the
 connection is not working.. Here with ddclient, how do i find the
 error..

You are using syslog=yes. So have a look at your logfiles for error or
success messages.

 so here is my ddclient.conf
...
 daemon=300# check every 300 seconds
 syslog=yes# log update msgs to syslog
 mail=root # mail all msgs to root
 mail-failure=root # mail failed update msgs to root
 pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid # record PID in file.
 #
...
 fw=192.168.2.1
 fw-login=nurense fw-password=carlito  # FW login and
 password
 ## To obtain an IP address from FW status page (using fw-login,
 fw-password)
 use=fw, fw=192.168.2.1/status_main.htm, fw-skip='IP Address' # found
 after IP Address
 # server=members.dyndns.org,  \
 # protocol=dyndns2\
 # your-dynamic-host.dyndns.org
...
 ##
 ## OrgDNS.org account-configuration
 ##
 use=web, web=members.orgdns.org/nic/ip
 server=www.orgdns.org \
 protocol=dyndns2  \
 login=soundgigi   \
 password=carlito  \
 soundgigi.orgdns.org

Are you using OrgDNS or dyndns? A few line down you mention that your
domain is soundgigi.dyndns.org. So I would use the configuration part
for dyndns (especially the server). And please change the password
before anyone on the list does it for you ;-)

 
 Did i miss something fundamental ?
except the server ? no.
 
 
 Just to understand
 
 the ddclient connects automatically to dyndns, so it extracts the
 current ip-adress from the router ant that is linked to my domain..which
 is soundgigi.dyndns.org
 
 so i should be able to ping that domain name if the connection works,
 right ??

If your router answers to pings yes. It's perhaps safer to do a
dns lookup for soundgigi.dyndns.org after you connected. It should
point to the IP that you are using at the moment.
A ping to that adress might go to another host so it's not a proof that
everything worked.

 
 So and after that i set my IP in the freenet.config to
 soundgigi.dyndns.org, right ?

yes.

 I appreciate your help very much !!
