No plan to add additional DDNS services, sorry.

Is there a specific reason why not? Because custom DDNS configuration is pretty much the only major feature that's I'm missing from the firmware.

Please refer to how DD-WRT has their DDNS section setup and then the firmware would be perfect!

Priorities. Developing and implementing that kind of feature takes time, which I prefer to devote to other features, otherwise I could make it a full-time job just trying to implement every single DynDNS services that gets requested (and actually, I don't understand why so many of them exist when they all do 90% the same thing, just with different names and proprietary protocols).

Also note that DD-WRT uses a completely different DDNS client than Asuswrt (inadyn instead of ez-ipupdate).

Look at either DNS-O-Matic (which can let you transparently use DDNS services not supported by the router), or installing a different DynDNS client through Optware/Entware.

If DD-WRT has it, then why not use DD-WRT if you're so desperate for it?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but DD-WRT doesnt work on the RT-AC66U yet...?

Thanks for the quick reply!

I understand priorities... I didn't mean implementing every single one, just opening it up to custom settings by letting users specify DYNDNS Server, User Name, Password, Host Name, and URL.

But i'll definitely look into those services you listed... thanks!

Default DNS-O-Matic

I use www.dnsomatic.com (from OpenDNS) with NameCheap.
Host name in this case is all.dnsomatic.com, and you can configure NameCheap settings in your DNS-O-Matic account.

I also really appreciate if you can include namecheap DDNS with the firmware.
Thanks.
