OpenDNS recently dropped usernames and now is using email addresses only. I'm wondering INADYN doesn't allow special characters in the username either. If this is the case, then DNSoMatic isn't going to work with INADYN, because of the "@" in the email address.

I have setup a family member's DD-WRT router with DDNS enabled using DNS-O-Matic and an email address for login with no problems updating. The DD-WRT router is using build 14473 with the following DDNS settings:

DDNS Service: Custom
DYNDNS Server: updates.dnsomatic.com
User Name: [name@email.net]
Password: [password]
Host Name: all.dnsomatic.com
URL: /nic/update?&wildcard=ON

Do not use external ip check = YES

Force Update Interval = 10

You would not see a problem unless this option is turned off. It seems that there are quite a few people that see a "failed" IP address check. Because an IP address is not returned, then it fails to update.

Given that I'm rather niave on this topic I need to ask;

If an external IP Check is not performed how does DDNS know what information (External IP Address) to pass to the service provider?

BTW: I have this option set and don't have a problem with updates.

I am not certain to which 'internal' interface that DD-WRT ties this to, but I do know it essentially looks at the WAN address to get its "external" IP check. If the WAN is private IP address (as determined by Internet standards), then the IP update would fail as public DNS cannot route to private IPs.

If the external IP check is not performed, the IP it determines as the WAN address will be passed to the dynamic DNS provider.

can we set different polices for multiple clients as there is a tab called Access Policy in Linksys firmware.

here's my help...this might save somebody a few hours one day...like it cost me, everything i tried, it would just say connecting to server. i finally tried changing my network name for opendns, it was two words, numbers and letters, an address actually. as soon as i took off the street name, it worked.
so for whatever reason, using the -a between hostnames works, but i would stick to one set of characters (no spaces)
thanks to all the posters!

Yes, that you state what router and build version number you have when asking for help..

If you have multiple OpenDNS hostnames, change it to:

Host Name: myhostname1

Of course, you should put your own hostname instead myhostname1.

What do you need help with? What is your router not doing? (or more like what are you trying to do?)
