    Newbie question:

    I am running Marcs updater on a Windows 2003 server. When I check "IP updates" from the tray icon I am seeing an update every 2 hrs 40 mins even though I have update freq set to 5 mins.

    Is that what I should expect to see, and if not how do I fix it?

    Thanks

    You got the wrong platform. Better ask this at Marc's site.

    Whatever, an Updater in general is supposed to only perform an update if the IP address actually has changed. Saying that this is 2:40 for you tells me that this is most likely the frequency your ISP changes your IP address. Strangely quite often!

    I think you answered my question. The updates listed are not always associated with an IP change. I will assume that it is checking every 5 mins as set up.

    Thanks

    Checking and actually updating are two different things. You can configure the checks in one of 5, 10, 15, 30, 60, 120 minutes intervals, but an actual update takes place:
    - If the check discovers that the IP address has changed;
    - If you open the GUI and leave it with clicking "Ok" instead of "Cancel";
    - In rare cases after a network fluctuation;
    - There may be other conditions I didn't discover yet.
