Gratisdns DDNS not working properly

  • Hi,

    When I setup DDNS on gratisdns it never caches the current IP and I get the following errors in syslog:

    /services_dyndns_edit.php: phpDynDNS ( (Unknown Response)
    /services_dyndns_edit.php: phpDynDNS ( PAYLOAD: ^M <title>403 Forbidden</title>^M ^M 
    # 403 Forbidden
    * * *
    ^M ^M ^M

    If I create a custom DDNS entry with this URL it works perfectly.

    What am I doing wrong?

  • For anyone googling and finding this post the solution is to put a FQDN in the hostname field, and also put the domain in the domain field.

    It will look a bit weird in the Dynamic DNS Clients overview, such as: but it will work.
