Thanks, I have not read through the files you sent, but I have
a point I want to clear up.

I installed the package version and it does not have the help stuff.

I am coming to the conclusion that the person who built the package
which is distributed from the FBSD ftp site did it wrong, as it is
missing this stuff you have access to.

I think this is me problem. Should I submit this as  problem report?

Umm.. how about this. The attached file "ez-ipupdate.help.txt"
the output for ez-ipupdate --help. Where it says -S, --service-type,
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
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
