I had problems with this feature as well a long, long time ago. But I
couldn't remember what I did to fix it. One of the issues I had was
being able to run the generated PERL script on the dynamic host. The
rest of it got lost in the murk. Thanks for the nudge in the right
direction. Now if I could only remember what I wanted to monitor!

The underlying cause turned out to be a file-access issue. I run the
daemon under its own user account, called 'smoke'. This user also owns
data files for SmokePing. The web server runs under a different user
'apache'. The address registration file is maintained by the
script, triggered by the web server.
A first fix was to add the 'apache' user to the 'smoke' group, and to
directories in the data and htdocs group-writeable.
More work is needed to line up suexec and Perl's -T mode to do things
