I saw this sometime ago.

I too have a domain name managed by zoneedit and have ddclient installed 
in the hopes of having the ip address updated whenever the DSL connection 

However so far, I haven't been able to configure ddclient properly to do 
so. I keep getting the following error message in the /var/log/message 
May  6 18:27:11 leeloo ddclient[2124]: WARNING:  file 
/var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache, line 3: Invalid Value for keyword 'ip' 
= ''

... and haven't been able to figure out how to setup /etc/ddclient.conf

Any chance you could post some guidance?
