I have a domain named: mydomain.com in dynu.com and on on my linux box I tried to set up a dynamic dns and I am getting bad authorization.

Here is my conf:

# ddclient configuration for Dynu
#
# /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf
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.
use=web, web=checkip.dynu.com/, web-skip='IP Address' # Get ip from server.
server=api.dynu.com # IP update server.
protocol=dyndns2
login=myusername
password=mypassword
mydomain.com


And the ddclient update request:

Have you tried enclosing the password in single quotes?

Confirmed, the ddclient password field expects single quotations and the domain as last line.

Also i like to note, the config of the ddclient does not accept spaces or tabs, it requires to be LF's (not windows CRLF) and continuation of
field=value
