Question
How do I configure DDNS in my SBG6580-2? 
Answer
The SBG6580-2 supports the usage of a Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS).  DDNS service provides users with the ability to access the SBG6580-2 or other devices, such as a web server or video cameras, in a home network using a friendly name from various locations over the Internet.  This document describes how to set up Dynamic DNS.

Requirements
  • DDNS service provider subscribed to.
  • DDNS Account username, password, and DDNS hostname.
 
DDNS Setup
  1. Launch a Firefox or Safari browser.  Enter http://192.168.0.1 into the address box, and press the Enter key.  

    NOTEA browser message on Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Opera, may appear when accessing the Web Manager.  The message includes 192.168.01 uses an unsupported protocol and ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH.  The Web Manager uses an earlier version of the TLS protocol and does not match the version allowed by the web browser.  Safari browsers on Apple PC and mobile devices are not impacted.  The workaround to access the Web Manager with a PC is to use the Firefox browser and set the TLS version to 1.  For workaround instructions refer to article # 19435 - 192.168.0.1 uses an unsupported protocol
     
  2. A security or private risk alert may appear on the web browser advising users to proceed with caution when accessing the Web Manager.  There is no risk in proceeding to the Web Manager.  For instructions to bypass the alert screen, refer to article # 18181 - Alert Message for Web Manager Access.
