Setting ip & Port , Can you use a DNS name ?

mrluke6 years ago

Ive setup Traccar with my GPS306B which is fine . Using port 5001

Only problem i have is my IP does change as its dynamic. Atm im using a script in Linux which checks the outside IP every few mins and updates my Cpanel server ( externally hosted ) and updates a DNS record so i can still connect to my home network via openvpn .

for e.g. My IP translates to Home.MYWEBSITE.com

Any way on these trackers to enter a DNS name instead of an IP ? or a way to update the tracker everytime my IP does change ?

I know many cheap Chinese GPS tracking devices lack of ability to resolve DNS host names. Not sure about this particular one.
