Post badauth being received

I have been racking my brain on using this service. If I configure a host WITH a location, I can update my IP with the location parameter in the URL. However, I am using OpenWrt on my router, and really do not want to change the standard scripts that are delivered with the OS as I don't want to keep up with the changes on subsequent upgrades. The scripts do not allow for an additional parameter, so I am stuck with only username, password, hostname and IP. If I use the location parameter and provide it in place of the hostname (to keep their script intact), I can update the IP, but other parts of the script break which causes false errors and more updates than necessary. Is there a way I can see the logs on the server side? Or can you see if I am passing an invalid URL. Thanks.
