Hello, I've seen others posting this issue for Snow Leopard, but I am running Leopard 10.5.8 and after installing the Dyndns Updater, it states that the Daemon failed to start and asks for an admin password to start it.. after which it 'seems' to run ok.. but this tells me that something is not working correctly..
I have tried uninstalling (from the Dyndns Tools menu) removing the app, and reinstalling to no avail. I am using the most current version of the updater as well.
Any ideas what would be causing this?

Cleaning up an old (and up until now unanswered) question. As a matter of form, I choose to provide an answer before closing it.
According to answers to other questions regarding DynDNS Updater on Snow Leopard (see for example DynDNS Updater for Mac on Snow Leopard?), and the release notes, this issue is resolved in the latest editions of DynDNS Updater for Mac OS X.
In contrast, at the time of this writing, the installation guide still states that there is an issue with the daemon not starting automatically on Snow Leopard - presumably because the installation guide simply hasn't been updated in a while.
If you're seeing this issue, try updating to the latest version of DynDNS Updater for Mac. If you already have the latest version, try uninstalling it and then installing it anew.
