    It is not recommended to run an updater on a roaming device.  The updater must be permanently running in the network it is to keep updated, else you risk to register a wrong IP address with your dashboard, so you lose your settings for your home network, and you may impact other users in the other network.

    Therefore you ideally use a built-in DDNS update client on a device like the router, a NAS, DVR, IP camera, etc., or a software on a computer in the network.  The update client must support one of OpenDNS, DNS-O-Matic or "custom / user defined".

    If your Android device is always running and connected to your network, you can use it as updater as well.

    Also, why does the Android updater from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=fr.guillaumevillena.opendnsupdater not work?  You may contact the author to ask for support.
    Alternatively, use e.g. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.icecoldapps.dynamicdnsupdate

    Well so i understand only now that the one i was using is not your official android app... Ok...
    I thought to use a android box tv, to automate the OpenDNS ip update... Is linked via eth cable.

    I have a zyxel router that supports the no-ip dns auto update... F.ex: i have 89.89.123.123 wan ip and miodns.no-ip.com as NoIP service provider, how is possible add the no-ip ddns to OpenDNS settings log report... Remember that my scope is only have the list of all connections made by devices in my lan, to see if they surfed o youtube, google or other mobile apps...

    "not your official android app"

    No, it's not mine, I'm just a user like you.  And it's apparently not OpenDNS' either.  There is no "official Android app".  There are official updaters only for Windows and Mac OSX.

    "I thought to use a android box tv, to automate the OpenDNS ip update... Is linked via eth cable."

    This sounds fine in principle.  A valid approach.

    "how is possible add the no-ip ddns to OpenDNS settings"

    This is not possible.  Again, to use an update client with OpenDNS, it must support at least one of OpenDNS, DNS-O-Matic or "custom / user defined" as service provider.  No-IP is clearly not one of them.
