    If your Synology device supports DNS-O-Matic or "user defined", then you can use it also for OpenDNS.

    You configure OpenDNS as service at https://www.dnsomatic.com/

    Then you configure your device to send updates to DNS-O-Matic which again updates OpenDNS for you.

    "Or, what are the manual settings for DNS-o-matic"

    What do you mean by "manual settings"?  The update URL is:

    http://updates.dnsomatic.com/nic/update?hostname=HOSTNAME
    where HOSTNAME is your OpenDNS network label or all.dnsomatic.com if you want to update more services through DNS-O-Matic.

    Yes, these are the fields normally used for the DDNS update API. It would have been better to post a link to the user manual or screen shots.
    Whatever, try with this:

    Provider: DNS-O-Matic
    Protocol: dyndns2
    Server: updates.dnsomatic.com
    Hostname: as I said above already
    IP: TBD dynamically by the updater
    Wildcard: irrelevant here
    Static: irrelevant here
    Custom: irrelevant here
    Login: Your e-mail address registered with OpenDNS and DNS-O-Matic
    Password: Your password for OpenDNS and DNS-O-Matic
    The rest (MX fields) is irrelevant here.

    I attach the screenshot for everyone's reference.

     

    for the hostname, you should use all.dnsomatic.com IF You use dnsomatic in conjunction with OpenDDNS, NOIP, etc.

    hope it helps.

    In case you are wondering which program I used,

    you need to download two packages to install manually on synology before it can work.

    1. http://www.cphub.net/index.php?id=40&pid=293  Init 3rdparty

    2. http://www.cphub.net/index.php?id=40&pid=294  DDNS updater

     

    Have fun!

    Thanks, this helped me to set it up on the Synology side of things. My status message in DDNS updater is 'Update successful', however, when I go to opendns.com or dnsomatic it hasn't updated to my IP. Going to dns-o-matic.com  I'm getting a "badauth" error.

    I used the exact info lightner used in his attached image. 

    I checked username and password and logged into both opendns.com and dnsomatic.com using the same user/pass as ddns on the synology.

    error below: Any ideas?

    The error "badauth" means that something is wrong with your authentication credentials.

    Do not use special characters used for URL encoding. Use only letters, numbers, dash, dot and underbar.

    Yes, apparently, as your screen shot clearly shows.

    But you do not need to go through DNS-O-Matic.  Your device apparently supports updating OpenDNS directly.

    Is there a modern update to this for DSM 7?
