a few days I've registered for opendns, I've created my account and used this secure password that fits your rules:
I was able to login with this password but the ddclient doesn't worked. I tried to debug it and found that the problem exists while loging in to updates.opendns.com using a browser too.
In the browser pops up the httpauth window and using my email and the password above doesn't worked. So I've tried to choose an other password - also doesn't worked with "wrong password" (it was not wrong, I've just login in with it before I want to change my password). So I've requested a password reset and set my password less secure with only one 'harmless' special character - voila ddclient is able to connect.
- check your internal password handling so that httpauth can deal with passwords with all special characters (ok, could be a technical problem) or
- update your password policy to deny passwords with some special-special characters (or inform users so they can avoid it).
Cisco answered me on this topic:
There are a few characters that cannot be used in passwords used with the Dynamic IP Updater Client. These characters include:^, &, , ~, `, and %.
So maybe this helps other people with a similiar problem to solv it
