Does anyone know if you can configure how often the IP updates with dyndns. I have the problem that the dynamic IP changes fairly frequently and the it takes a while for the hostname to update and meanwhile my client cant view their CCTV systems.

the frequency of updates is determined by the update client that you use. The update client that is offered via Dyn (http://www.dyndns.com/support) is programmed to update every 10 minutes and can not be changed. There are 3rd party clients out there that you are welcome to use that may allow you to change the frequency that updates occur. If you are using an update client that will allow you to do this, please note that when it checks for updates and there are no changes, this can be flagged as abuse, and can be subject to your account being locked. If an update occurs with an IP change, then you're all good. Hope this helps.
