    Hello,
    I have a weird router which uses a blank username and password. In other words, it still requires basic HTTP authentication, but the correct user name and password are both empty strings. I've tried adding the following lines to ddclient.conf:

        fw-login=
        fw-password=

    Unfortunately, ddclient rejects this with the message:

        WARNING:  file /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf, line 8: Invalid Value for keyword 'fw-login' = ''
        WARNING:  skipping host: Address: 'login=' is an invalid login.

    How do I get ddclient to send the HTTP authorization header my router is expecting, but with a blank user name and password? Thanks for any help.

    -William

    I'm afraid it is not possible without any code hacking.  Alternatively you could use the use=web option or try to find a page on your router which doesn't need any login information.
