IPUpdate born when I needed to build my server at my office but to be able to serve web pages. But I couldn't do that because I didn't have static IP (it changed every 2 days). Then I made IPUpdate. The first version only was used at my office, but the current version 2.1 come with more news, a graphical settings interface and a built-in webserver to setup from a LAN or from Internet. Currently the Flavionet server uses IPUpdate 2.1 to keep the FLAVIONET domain updated.
News of the 2.1 version:
- Added a small built-in webserver to setup and manage IPUpdate from Internet or from a LAN using a simple webbrowser.
- Now you can specify the maximum time of waiting to one address in seconds (request timeout). Before, it was fixed (60 seconds).
- When the Internet conection falls or IPUpdate cannot locate the IP service in Internet, the tray icon becomes very showy (red).
Bugs solved in 2.1 version:
- Solved the crash when reaching the timeout.
- Other minor bugs.
