Smart DNS Proxy Stopped Working?
Unfortunately, whenever your public IP address changes, you will need to activate/update your IP as per step #3 for the service to work again.
Just to let you know, your IP address could have changed due to;
- Your Internet connection got cut off momentarily.
- Internet router was rebooted.
- Your ISP made some changes or rebooted their system on their back end.
