    Is there any workaround to get tomatos DDNS Service running with opendns (www.opendns.com) (since it only accepts secure https://)?

    Great piece of software!

    Thanks in advance

    Nope, there's no way of doing this yet. The HTTPS requirement is the problem - it means you can't even use the router's implementation of wget. :(

    Note that while Tomato doesn't support DDNS updates via HTTPS you can still do so from clients running on your local network. OpenDNS lists any number of clients, on most major platforms, that they're compatible with.

    Also, if you use OpenDNS consider using the strict order command to ensure OpenDNS servers are queried before others.

    By what mechanism is the public IP determined in this scenario ? Does DDNS register the sending IP or does the client do a "whatismyip" look up and send that to DDNS ?

    Depends on the client. I think most will use the whatismyip method, or they will send their own ip, (which in most of our cases would be the 192.168.x.x ip, which isn't what you want to send.)

    Anyway, would much prefer to have the router take care of all of this.
