Well, I can definitely confirm this works, since I'm using the m0n0 DynDns
client myself...

Any idea where you originally saw the fix? I searched the m0n0 mailing list
at the time I bought it (a few months ago) but couldn't find anything. I
think I eventually found the suggested console commands amongst some
messages on one of the OpenBSD or FreeBSD mailing lists, together with an
explanation of why they work.

It may be possible to automate the script using the <shellcmd> XML tags in
m0n0's config.xml file, but I must admit I've not looked into this very
closely. I also don't know if this will only apply when the m0n0 is
restarted, or whether it's possible to apply this every time the IP changes.
(Anyone who's used <shellcmd> in this scenario, comments please?)

Does your ADSL provider offer multiple WAN IPs? It'd be great to find out
whether the X-Modem + m0n0 configuration will work in that configuration,
either using Server NAT or 1:1 mapping within m0n0.

Apart from that, good luck. It's a nice little device, bit overpriced when
compared to the Dlink DSL-300T, but it's done the job for me very well for
the last few months.
