[FreeNAS 0.7.2] INADYN "Fatal dyndns server update error"

Hi,

I hope this is the right place to talk about a possible bug involving INADYN in FreeNas 0.7.2.
Should I be wrong, please direct me to the right forum.

I am running FreeNas 0.7.2 Sabanda (revision 8191), and face an issue with its DynDNS client. I repeatedly get the same errors in the logs, whatever carefully I checked the domain, login, and password I use to update my IP on DynDNS.

Code: Select all

Is it a bug, which would better solved upgrading to the latest Nas4Free release, or is it an error of mine easy to fix ? Nothing wrong with an update, it will just take a lot of time to complete it in the best conditions, which I would prefer to avoid right now.

Thanks in advance for any clue.

Moin,
on my side DynDNS works as expected - be sure to use right credentials. The Log say that either your login(domain) or password is incorrect.

You were right.

I tried to use a shorter password, it worked: inadyn successfully updated my domain name at dyndns.com. Then, I gradually extended the password length by a few signs, deleting the files /tmp/inadyn_ip.cache and /tmp/inadyn_time.cache and restarting inadyn to actually force the update; it worked, no more error messages being pushed in the logs. Finally, I came back to my first long password. It worked still.

Where the problem may have come from, as my domain gets now updated with the same credential as those I used a few days ago ? Perhaps my account got blacklisted for a few days by Dyn.com for whatever reason. At first, I tried to update two domains from the same host, belonging to two separate accounts on Dyn.com; it may have messed up things.

Not sure about that.
