[Dibbler] Dibbler FQDN+TA version

Hi there.

I've just started getting to know Dibbler - very nice! I have been most
impressed with how easy it is to compile (on Ubuntu breezy), and how
easily the WindowsXP binaries installed and worked.

However, I very much want to use DDNS, so I grabbed the FQDN+TA version.
However, short of reading the source code, I can't figure how it is
supposed to work.

Does anyone have a sample client and sample server config file,
preferably commented, that I could use as a stating point? The sample
files included don't make sense to me.

Also, is a FQDN+TA client version of the software needed, or is the
"standard" Dibbler WinXP client enough?

When I say DDNS, I mean this:

 - the client has a name (FQDN) that it wants to use
 - it sends that name to the server as part of its request
 - the server allocates an address to the client
 - the server does two dynamic updates to register the name
   (forward lookup) and the address (reverse lookup) in the DNS.
 - when the lease expires, the server does dynamic updates to
   remove these entries from the DNS

Is this possible with Dibbler?

Regards, K.
