Noip ddns dependencies


#1

I had some problems with setting up ddns for no-ip. Long story short, the documentation is almost right. What I needed to do was install libopenssl, libustream-openssl, uclient-fetch, and ca-certificates before I can get everything to work right. The mysterious log entry with an error code of 5 was a hint but only after I read the source code for uclient-fetch.

Anyway if someone could update the documentation it would be great. Otherwise I hope when people Google they find this note.


#2

That is a dependency in order to use HTTPS DDNS services.

  • This information in included. Did you use opkg install or the LuCI web GUI, or did you just install the IPK file?

  • Did you install the scripts too?


#3

Do you installed ddns-scripts_no-ip_com package ?


#4

Yes, I started by installing ddns-scripts_no-ip_com and the Luci packages. Obviously the other packages are dependencies but for some reason the openwrt didn't know about them


#5

Again, did you use the web GUI, the opkg command, or download the IPK install package???


#6

I used the web gui
