dhclient and ddclient are two unrelated softwares...

here is my ddclient.conf file (with private info hidden) so you can 
compare with yours (just replace the xxxx and the 
"" with your infos...)

This config file works with the ddclient version from Dapper (Ubuntu 
6.06) server and is run as a daemon (not sure if I had to enable it or 
if it was enabled by default), but the script /etc/init.d/ddclient is 
run automatically at startup...
