OpenDNS DDNS for OpenWRT

OpenDNS is update by SSL/TLS (https) with the following URL:


OpenWRT doesn't ship with curl used to update HTTPS sources, so we need to install that.

root@OpenWrt:~# opkg update
root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install curl

Now we need to download the latest Certificate Authority bundle. Such a bundle is in the PEM format and can be downloaded from

root@OpenWrt:~# mkdir -p /etc/ssl/certs/
root@OpenWrt:~# wget -P /etc/ssl/certs/

More in depth information can be obtain at the OpenWRT wiki page for DDNS.
