Umm.. how about this. The attached file "ez-ipupdate.help.txt" contains
the output for ez-ipupdate --help. Where it says -S, --service-type, find
the one you need for zoneedit. You can see my ez-ipupdate.conf only
contains 6 lines, I figure you need to change the service part to
zoneedit, ie the -S switch, and the user=<user name>[:password] to your
user name and password and put that in /usr/local/etc.

Copy the ez-ipupdate.sh to /usr/local/etc/rc.d

Add ez_ipupdate_enable="YES" to your /etc/rc.conf

reboot or type

# /usr/local/bin/ez-ipupdate -c /usr/local/etc/ez-ipupdate.conf

Hope this is of more help
