    I am running DNS updater client v2.2.1. The update history (obtained thru context menu in task bar) is:

    71.70.184.224 2011-12-20 20:49

    The DNS Updater client status window says 'Last updated 1 hr 30 minutes ago'. Why does the most recent update not appear in the update history (last date in history is Dec 20)? Also, if I click 'Update now' in the status window, it updates (now says 'less than a minute ago'), but the update history remains unchanged. Why is the update history not being updated?

    Also, my current IP is not what is listed in the Update History, it 71.70.185.139, and it has been that new value for at least a few weeks. Why does the update history not reflect my current IP address?

    Because the update history is buggy, and not only this, so easy.
    See the many repetitions on 2011-12-20 20:49? Shouldn't happen either!
    Marc's Updater has a reliable history. http://updater.marc-hoersken.de/

    When I saw this topic on the forum list, I was hoping there would be some sort of official explanation or response from OpenDNS staff/tech support.

    I have also noticed this same issue with the OpenDNS Updater v2.2.1, as well as a few other deficiencies with the updater program. The main one being no apparent option to delay the start of the program during system startup, to eliminate conflicts with other more important programs/services at system startup. Perhaps there is an undocumented command line 'switch'?

    The available documentation about the program (within and online) is sadly lacking enough detail to be of much use.

    For a certain official response, open a support ticket.

    @maintenance Is there a language issue here?

    My previous comment about an "official explanation or response..." was mainly relating to the prior entries within this topic.

    The fact that it still wasn't done makes it seem as if there is something you don't want ALL users to know, or something is being hidden in relation to obvious deficiencies of the OpenDNS Updater client software. Open communication is usually better.

    Not sure why you come back. As I said above, "Because the update history is buggy, and not only this, so easy".

    We (the users, including you) know that the Updater is not fault-free. I even know about more glitches and disadvantages. An "official explanation or response" is not really needed and would not add value.

    But, as you have the choice, why not using just another of the many Updaters available? This Updater is not really the most important piece here as you got alternatives. Main thing is that the service works.

    Yes. I don't want users to know *anything*, since I have a vested interest in... I dunno, some conspiracy or other.

    I don't know about language issues, but perhaps comprehension issues are involved. If one wants an answer from an official OpenDNS employee, one would open a support ticket. Not sure how that leads to hiding anything from anyone, but YMMV, I guess.
