Here is my scenario:

I have several locations that expose resources to over the public network for the purpose of monitoring (cameras, networks, etc.).

I secure access using multiple layers. In addition to the standard user name and login, I also do a reverse DNS check on my firewall to make sure the traffic is coming from either another one of my locations or my mobile phone. To accomplish this on my phone, I would need a dynamic DNS update client for my phone.

I know I can accomplish this by visiting the website and forcing an update, but I would rather have it automated.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Mike

The protocol isn't very complicated, so you could whip up such an app pretty easily if there isn't already one in the store. On the other hand, it's not the kind of thing most people would find useful. Even leaving aside the fact that Dyn just killed their free accounts, it's usually aimed at servers (game servers, remote desktop/ssh servers, VPN servers, home web servers, etc.) and one doesn't generally run a server on their phone.
