Client and server software for dynamic DNS services

TinyDYN is a package of client and server software for operating dynamic DNS services. It lets anyone run dynamic DNS services on their own network using strong authentication (via gpg), or be a client of someone using TinyDYN as a dynamic IP management system. Clients can communicate directly by UDP with the server, by email, or by any other transport the admin can imagine, as the mechanism is quite straightforward.
