proxy server dynDNS problem

Hi,

In the proxy server settings I am using a name server at dyndns.com (eg myname.dyndns.com)because the proxy I use (my home computer, I am running oe on a remote server) is on a dynamic IP.

When my IP changes it updates this automatically to dyndns.com, butoe doesn`t seem to recognise this until oe is restarted, even though the name server doesn`t change.

Possibly oe finds the actual IP then keeps it in cache? Not sure there is a way around it, unless it automatically rechecks the proxy IP if files don`t download for a specific time?

Cheers,

Tony.

Yes, Offline Explorer keeps IP addresses in its cache to make faster downloads. This cache is valid for few hours.
