So my system log is filling with

LOG.jpeg



So looking at above I see that the watchdog runs Start ddns every 30sec. The issue I have is that I have a static IP, so this only needs to run less frequently.

Where do I look to change this ?

I checked crontab but it look like its not there.

Yes, registration successful

But why every 30 seconds, When set to update every 21 days ?

Why does this thread have a red 'Beta' label? Should that be changed or removed? :)

Enable DDNS debugging to get more info.

Code:
nvram set ddns_debug=1

What WAN IP retrieval method is used on the ddns page? Internal or external? Is the router WAN IP the same as the external IP the DDNS sees? Any double NAT?

External, yup, not that I know

tried Internal with no change

This looks like a configuration issue to me.

I might just disable ddns as I have other dns names I can use that point to my static IP.
