Setup a Cron Job on Mac OS X to update your IP address

If you don't want to use our playmoTV Linker for Mac, then you can setup a cron job on your machine to update your IP address every hour.

Note: Only follow this guide if you are familiar with the Terminal and running commands in it.

  1. Open Terminal, type crontab -e and hit Enter.
  2. Then press "i" on the keyboard to activate Insert Mode.
  3. Once you have done that, write the following command (but replace "Your_account_key" with your actual account key):

    0 * * * * curl -o /dev/null

    You can get your account code here:
  4. Once you have done this, press ESC to exit Insert mode. Then type ":wq" to save your changes.
  5. Now your cron job should be setup, and the IP address will be updated every hour.
