Hi had been using DNS-O-Matic to update my dynamic IP on my Cloudflare DNS record for over a year. I have been using the DDNS facility on my Synology NAS to call DNS-O-Matic to update my IP for a few months, then DNS-O-Matic (used to) make the update on CloudFlare.
Suddenly on 12th March 2019 I started getting from DNS-O-Matic notifications of CloudFlare response "err DNS Validation Error (1004)" every time it attempted to update CloudFlare.
No single attempt to update CloudFlare via DNS-O-Matic has been successful since.
I had made no change on either CloudFlare or DNS-O-Matic set up before this started happening.
From my research it would seem that a CloudFlare validation error means the call made to Cloudflare API (by DNS-O-Matic in this case) is somewhat not in the expected format.
I contacted DNS-O-Matic support a couple of times over a couple of weeks, but I've had no response so far.
Has anyone come across a similar communication breakdown between DNS-O-Matic and CloudFlare? has anyone found a solution?
