I want to create a new notification, which would have changed the address PRTG a DNS name on the service DynDNS. For browsers it should be http://username:[email protected]/nic/update?hostname=yourhostname&myip=ipaddress

But when I get the testing this notification - result HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required. The same address from the browser works fine. What am I doing wrong?

authorization dyndns notifications

I solved this problem by using wget http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wget, creating a notification to run EXE file with this parameter: -q --no-check-certificate --http-user=USERNAME --http-password=PASSWORD "https://members.dyndns.org/nic/update?hostname=DNSNAME&myip=MYIPADDRESS

Maybe my experience will help to someone. It works.

Hello,

I'm very much afraid PRTG does not yet support this URL, but we will enable it for PRTG 9 (Q4 2011). Please bear with us.

best regards.
