Dynamic DNS Clients (using https)
« on: October 08, 2011, 01:04:57 PM »

I'm attempting to update my DDNS address using HTTP.     

It appeared from the wording of the https page that http was supported using a syntax of:

However I get the following error:
-ERROR: Invalid API key or password

Since it works fine with https, is this broken or is the error just not descriptive of the problem?

2nd question:
Given that http support is much more common, does anyone have a recommendation for a non-browser ddns client or method using https?     Google isn't coming up with much.

I'd prefer client because they should be a little smarter about updating only when necessary, but if using a scripting method does care about how often the record gets updated?

Are you using your username or the user ID on the main page (under your name)?
