    I just setup DDNS for OpenDNS and I keep getting the following "Last Result" message:
    What am I doing wrong, I know the username and password is correct, but I keep getting this error :(
    p.s. I have "Enable dynamic IP update" setup on OpenDNS.com

    well... I have "invalid hostname" for the moment, and I know it works because I already saw it working.
    so maybe there's a problem with opendns server.
    I'm using Tomato 1.11.

    you don't login to OpenDNS from your router, you login online and create a "network".
    are you sure you are not confusing it with DynDNS and the likes?

    Right, OpenDNS has to be able to link an IP address with an account in order for the functionality requiring an account to take effect. Those with Dynamic IPs must use Dynamic DNS clients to notify OpenDNS when their IP changes, and Tomato 1.08 and up can do that. I hope that clears up any confusion, stangri.

    However, you do need to set up a network on OpenDNS if you haven't already. I'm still on 1.10, and OpenDNS updates work fine for me.

    Did you go to your OpenDNS Dashboard, then the "Set Up a Dynamic IP" link and click the "Enable dynamic IP update" box ?

    here are the error codes OpenDNS can return : http://www.opendns.com/support/article/88
    maybe Tomato don't read correctly "nochg" because my IP doesn't change everyday.
    and for invalid authentification, seems to be an invalid login/pass.

    SEE 1st POST :
    To re-answer your question Yes ;)
    Interesting, this could be a possibility... Can anyone else confirm or deny?
    Is there a way to check the DDNS update log to see what feedback Tomato is getting from OpenDNS?

    Ohh man am I an idiot,
    I downloaded the NVRAM Dump, and examined, only to find out, my password for OpenDNS was wrong... I had the damn caps lock on, and apparently OpenDNS is case sensitive...

    :DOH:

    Thanks for all the help, comments and suggestions

    Ah, I see what you mean.
    And since we're on the subject -- is that the current Tomato release screenshot? Does it not let you specify the "network" you wish to update as the hostname parameter (in case you want to collect stats about two different networks both of them have dynamic IPs under the same OpenDNS account)?

    Yes that screenshot is Tomato v1.11
    Did you ever used (older version of Tomato) to be able to enter a "network" ?

    I can't in 1.10. I don't know about 1.08 or 1.09.

    Nope, haven't used Tomato, considering it if it works fine with OpenDNS account which has a few networks linked. I know OpenDNS supports sending a network as a hostname.
