recently I have tried to setup a custom DDNS Service provider in order to link my domain which I have registered at namecheap to my DS415+.
I am on the latest firmware on the DiskStation.
What I did, was following the instructions by namecheap on how to setup a Query URL.
I then configured a new service provider in External Access -> DDNS -> Customize:
The full Query URL is:
Code: Select all
With that, I think the settings for the custom DDNS Service Provider (External Access -> DDNS -> Add) should be someting like this:
Service provider: *namecheap
Username/Email: [it is unused, so fill in anything you like]
Password/Key: [Your Dynamic DNS password provided by namecheap]
I also configured the needed host record in the control panel in my namecheap account:
Actually, this seems to be working alright. I can see that the Value for the IP in the namecheap control panel / website is updated as it should.
However, in DSM, I always end up with this error:
Failed to connect to server. Please check the network connection of the server.
Does anybody have an idea on how to get this formally right as well?
