VPNUK.net SmartDNS Updater Script

I've been using VPNUK.net for a while now to access UK based services such as iPlayer, however, it's SmartDNS service doesn't have a client which will run automatically and my service provider gives me a dynamic IP.

I decided to write a small PHP client to access the client control panel when my ip changed, registering the new one.

It's on GitHub, grab a copy here; https://github.com/Siftah/vpnuk_smartdns_client

If you use DNSMasq then an entry such as the following in /etc/dnsmasq.conf may also help to ensure you're pointing all relevant DNS queries at the right DNS server;

server=/bbc.co.uk/bbc.net/llnwd.net/bbc.net.uk/bbci.co.uk/bbci.co.uk.edgesuite.net/edgefcs.net/akafms.net/87.117.235.130

This points DNS queries for any of the domains (that I can see the BBC are using for iPlayer) to the VPNUK.net SmartDNS servers.
