I have an ASUS RT-AC86U router which includes a DDNS function. I have it set with my DNS-o-matic credentials. When there is an IP update it triggers DNS-o-matic properly. My DNS-o-matic account has three services: OpenDNS, ChangeIP, and No-IP. When I look at the staus page it says:
ChangeIP xxx :: xxx.changeip.net Waiting for first update Nov 18, 2018 3:53 pm
No-IP xxx :: xxx.no-ip.org Waiting for first update Nov 18, 2018 3:53 pm
OpenDNS xxx :: xxx xx.xxx.xxx.xxx Nov 18, 2018 3:51 pm
Each of the three is marked active and if I click the History links, they show:
ChangeIP details: There is no history for this service yet.
No-IP details: There is no history for this service yet.
OpenDNS details: xx.xxx.xxx.xxx, Nov 18, 2018 3:51 pm, OK
So, it appears that DNS-o-matic was unable to talk with ChangeIP and No-IP. I have set the box to "Email me service status Always". The email says: "OpenDNS response for 'xxxxx': good xx.xxx.xxx.xxx" with no mention of the other two services and no other errors. Some things I've tried:
1. If I mark OpenDNS service as Inactive, forcing an update results in a pop-up with the message: "myrouter says Request error! Please try again."
2. I have checked the hostname, username, and password for the ChangeIP and No-IP entries and they are the same as currently work via those services' web interfaces. They are also the same as my previous Actiontec router had which worked when we had FiOS.
3. I have also tried changing the passwords for ChangeIP and No-IP to have no special characters in them, just numbers and letters.
4. I have enabled only one service at a time and I get an error for ChangeIP and No-IP but no error with OpenDNS.
I'm at a loss. Is there any sort of log or expanded status report that might be available? Has anyone used DNS-o-matic with multiple services, specifically including one of ChangeIP or No-IP, and can tell me what to try? Thanks.
