Client Protocol

The update client connects to port 5768 and has a conversation which looks like this:

201 1.0 CustomDNS Update Server Ready
AUTH PASS password
202 Authentication accepted
200 Address updated
200 Goodbye

If you substitute AUTOMATIC for the IP address, the server will use the client's IP address.

For more details, look at the class CustomDNS.UpdateProtocol.

If you don't like this client protocol, look at How it Works and implement a new one.
