I am using OpenDNS since yesterday and have set it up in my router (AVM Fritz!Box 7330) using the infos for the dynamic IP update which I gathered searching the internet and tried the following configurations:
Username: [my DNS-O-Matic username]
Password: [my DNS-O-Matic password]
with this config the IP update works (can be seen on DNS-O-Matic and OpenDNS) but my router shows this in the log:
"Dynamic DNS-Fehler: Der angegebene Domainname kann trotz erfolgreicher Aktualisierung nicht aufgelöst werden"
which means "Although update was successful the domain name could not be resolved". Sure it has no TLD.
The "domainname" entry in the router is the customer URL from the dynamic DNS provider which makes the router available from external, like "myusername.dyndns.org".
I did not find any information on the OpenDNS and DNS-O-Matic website what this "domainname" could be. I also tried dnsomatic.com but without success, same with "localhost" - then the error gets even worse:
"Dynamic DNS-Fehler: Die Dynamic DNS-Aktualisierung war erfolgreich, anschließend trat jedoch ein Fehler bei der DNS-Auflösung auf."
Means: Update was successful but an error in DNS resolving occured afterwards" although I can normally access websites.
Currently trying to update directly via OpenDNS instead of DNS-O-Matic using this config.
Username: [my OpenDNS username]
Password: [my OpenDNS password]
(where "home" is the name for the registered network associated with my account)
With every config I get this error described below config 1) every 30 minutes - which seems to be the interval for the router to send an IP address update to a dynamic DNS service.
My question now is:
what should I use as proper "domainname" in the dynamic DNS settings to use with OpenDNS dynamic IP updates?
Maybe "OpenDNSusername.opennds.com" or "OpenDNSusername_networkname.opennds.com"?
Thanks a lot!
