OpenDNS update IP address at router level instead of client

I use OpenDNS and know they do a windows client to update the IP address registered with them if it changes.

Any way to do this at the router level, as I use various devices and can't install the OpenDNS client on them all.

Dnscrypt installer has a function for Opendns(cisco) ip update

edit:
The installer detects if Opendns (cisco) servers is selected during setup and askes if you want to setup the ip update

How do I setup DNScrypt to work with OpenDNS, as when I tried to do this, I couldn't find anywhere during install where it allows me to select OpenDNS.

Could you run through what I need to select during each stage of the installer as it asks a lot of questions, some of which I'm unsure of.

Can maybe take a look at this post it`s a guide for nextdns but you just select cisco server instead and you will get a question at the end to setup the ip update

So is this where I put OpenDNS server info...

Info: Choose how your DNS servers are selected:
1) Automatically
2) Manually
3) Static
=> Select your mode, [1-3]: 2
=> Please choose DNS server, [1-190]: find the nextdns server in list that is displayed and enter that number
=> Please choose next DNS server or press n to stop, [1-190/n]: n
Info: Set the DNS server(s) for initializing dnscrypt-proxy
Info: and router services (e.g. ntp) at boot
=> Default is 9.9.9.9: 1.1.1.1 << Replace with OpenDNS
=> 2nd Default is 8.8.8.8: 9.9.9.9 << Replace with OpenDNS

No
You do not enter the server manually, You select Cisco server from the list that you get from

and it should display a lot of servers
enter the number for Cisco (it`s Opendns server)

Think I've got this working now, as it did ask for my OpenDNS account info.
