DDclient

Sat May 18, 2013 4:00 pm

Hello, Im having trouble with DDCleint and updating a sub-domain from namecheap dynamic DNS.
This is my current DDClient config

Code: Select all

# Configuration file for ddclient generated by debconf
#
# /etc/ddclient.conf

protocol=namecheap
#use=if, if=eth0
use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.com/, web-skip='IP Address'
server=pi.mydomain.co.uk
login=mydomain.co.uk
password='bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb '
pi.mydomain.co.uk
When I run

Code: Select all

sudo ddclient
I get this response:

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi:~$ sudo ddclient
FAILED:   updating pi.mydomain.co.uk: unexpected line (&ip=EXTERNAL_IP HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found

This is mine using dyndns. It may yield some clues :

protocol=dyndns2
use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.com, web-skip='IP Address'
server=members.dyndns.org
login=pluggy
password='none of yourbusiness'
pluggy.is-a-geek.com
