Dynamic DNS with Route 53


npm install -g @3fv/dynamic-dns-r53 or yarn add global @3fv/dynamic-dns-r53

Run in Foreground or as a Service

The following will UPSERT an A DNS record named office in the Route53 domain identified by zone id Z38974KCMD0AO6 and will run forever updating on change.

# Run in foreground
dynamic-dns-r53 -v -a office -z Z38974KCMD0AO6 -p 3fv -d

# Once you know it works, use PM2 to run as a service
npm i -g pm2

# Configure PM2 to run at boot
pm2 startup

# Create the service
pm2 start --name dynamic-dns-r53 dynamic-dns-r53 -- \
  -v -a office -z Z38974KCMD0AO6 -p 3fv -d

Assuming a change is detected, you will see output like this:

 15:28:28 [INFO] (dynamic-dns-r53) Starting IP setup  
 15:28:28 [INFO] (dynamic-dns-r53) Using FQDN: office.3form.ventures.  
 15:28:28 [INFO] (dynamic-dns-r53) Getting IP Address  
 15:28:28 [INFO] (dynamic-dns-r53) Your IP is  ''
 15:28:28 [INFO] (dynamic-dns-r53) Update completed  

Remember, you likely still need to configure your router for port mapping, etc.
