Hi, I am trying to setup my DDNS but it keeps failing. Reading the past posts there was a suggestion to use: "all.dnsomatic.com" for the host value but it still does not work. Anybody got this working please?

Server: www.dnsomatic.com (selected from dropdown)
Host: all.dnsomatic.com (also tried my specific subdomain i.e. asus.domain.com and other value)
Username or email: username (was told email does not work)
Password: Mypassw0rd
Wildcard: NO
Verification: No (tried YES as well)
SSL Cert: NO

DNSOMATIC works for me on ASUSWRT. Never had an issue with past up to current firmware versions.

I use same settings except for username I use email.

Maybe it's a setting on DNSOMATIC side? How about create a new account and test?

My system log:

Code:

What version of the FMW are you using? This is the difference:

yours:
connected to updates.dnsomatic.com (146.112.255.155) on port 443

Mine:
connected to updates.dnsomatic.com (146.112.255.155) on port 80.

As stated above DNSOMATIC requires SSL, if I can force my router to use HTTPS instead it would be great!

Yeah, I noticed that when I first posted.

I didn't notice anything special in my DDNS config page. It has the same options that you listed.
And by special I mean use port 443 instead of port 80.

I'm using RT-AC86U's latest firmware. It's not by choice. It's because of the recent auto-update.

Also I've never had issues with DDNS, specifically configured to DNSOMATIC, with past firmwares. And of course I don't have the system log entries saved to see if it connected with 443 or 80 or whatever port.

Would a reboot or more drastically a reset and re-configure help? If you do reset, make sure to save the settings first.

OK, so I tried on my brother's RT-AC68U and it works - annoying Asus bug :-(

I have a case open but my hopes are very, very low...

Greetings,

Just reporting that as of October 27, 2020, dnsomatic made a system change that seems to have broken the update method used in Merlin's AsusWrt 384.19 firmware for dnsomatic.com. See here for more info of what I think has caused the issue as it worked fine for until around that day when my router attempted to force an update and failed. To workaround the issue, I had to setup a custom update as outlined here. It was easy enough to do since there was a good dnsomatic custom script here that made it mostly cut and paste via a ssh session.
