## To obtain an IP address from FW status page (using fw-login, fw-password)
#use=fw, fw=192.168.0.254/status.htm, fw-skip='IP Address' # found after
IP
Address

What are those two lines for?

Have you tried switching the:

fw-login=my login to the linksys router
fw-password=mypassword to the linksys router
use=linksys, fw=192.168.0.1:80 # via Linksys's internet FW


Around to look like:

use=linksys, fw=192.168.0.1:80 # via Linksys's internet FW
fw-login=my login to the linksys router
fw-password=mypassword to the linksys router


Might be a problem on how it parses the config file?

Ok, I placed:

fw-login=
fw-password=mypassword

immediately after:

use=linksys, fw=192.168.0.1:80

And the daemon started except that it complained about fw-login, but there's nothing I can do about that. Linksys DSL routers don't have a login name assigned to them, just a password. I checked the running processes and ddclient was listed. Only thing left to do would be to disconnect from my ISP and reconnect and see if ddclient does its thing.

Thanks and I'll keep you posted.
