Ddclient: Is This A Problem?

I’m running ddclient on a remote CentOS server (with dynamic IP address). About twice a day I get email from ddclient saying
“TIMEOUT: checkip.dyndns.org after 120 seconds”.

As far as I can see, ddclient checks the IP address every 10 minutes. So can I assume that ddclient got the address the next time it tried?

I looked at the Perl source, but couldn’t really disentangle it.

Ps: I’m one of those getting free dyndns service provided I login every month. I’m wondering if this service is going to stop sometime soon?
