Here is the debug output:

root@smashedup:/etc# sudo ddclient -daemon=0 -noquiet -debug
DEBUG: proxy =

DEBUG: server = checkip.dynu.com
DEBUG: get_ip: using web, checkip.dynu.com/ reports 24.77.252.25

FAILED: updating SMASHEDUP.DYNU.COM: badauth: Bad authorization (username or password)
Can't exec "sendmail": No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/ddclient line 1411.
ddclient: cannot execute command | sendmail -oi root.


Here is my config file minus the login/pass Although I confirmed them umpteentimes.


daemon=60 # Check every 60 seconds.
syslog=yes # Log update msgs to syslog.
mail=root # Mail all msgs to root.
mail-failure=root # Mail failed update msgs to root.
pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid # Record PID in file.
ssl=yes
use=web, web=checkip.dynu.com/, web-skip='IP Address' # Get ip from server.
server=api.dynu.com # IP update server.
protocol=dyndns2
login=xxxxxx # Your username.
password=xxxxxx # Password or MD5 of password.
SMASHEDUP.DYNU.COM # List one or more hostnames one on each line.
#MYDOMAIN.COM


I copy and paste the login/pass from this file to the dynu.com website login and I can log into, I also tried creating an update password that is different, same error.

Please advise

Configuration file looks ok. Apart from the bad authorization, not sure what to make out of this,

Can't exec "sendmail": No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/ddclient line 1411.
ddclient: cannot execute command | sendmail -oi root.

Do you have an IP update password that's different from the account password? Did you try both?

I tried with the account password first then created an IP password as well. The send mail error is just an automatic warning that gets mailed to root upon failure. So I have tried both methods of having passwords. It works fine on my windows machine, but this is on rasp Jan or minibian with a few mods.

Same problem here on Raspbian.
Did you find a solution?
