Dynamic DNS Updates - "Failed Login"

I have been trying to create a simple DDNS updater that gets the IP from my router and just about all I get if "login failed", the token has been recreated and I used copy and paste to transfer it, some examples below (token & ip redacted)

Code:
https://kuzco:<token>@api.cp.zoneedit.com/dyn/tomato.php?hostname=home.kuzco.net&myip=1.1.1.1
200: <ERROR CODE="708" TEXT="Failed Login: admin" ZONE="home.kuzco.net">

https://kuzco:<token>@dynamic.zoneedit.com/auth/dynamic.html?host=home.kuzco.net&dnsto=1.1.1.1
200: <ERROR CODE="708" TEXT="Failed Login: admin" ZONE="home.kuzco.net">

https://kuzco:709B4CFC6DAEE494@dynamic.zoneedit.com/dyn/easydns.php?rsp_ident=zoneedit&hostname=*.kuzco.net&myip=1.1.1.1
200: <ERROR CODE="708" TEXT="Failed Login: admin" ZONE="*.kuzco.net">
Any pointers to my problem, basically any method I use results in the same error.

I have had at least one success during my testing and I have no idea why that one worked.

Thanks for looking

I just had the same issue.

this is what worked for me (i'm using powershell - but you get it):

Code:
$uri= "https://"+$user+":"+$pass+"@api.cp.zoneedit.com/dyn/generic.php?hostname="+$host+"&myip="+$MyIp
in other words
Code:
https://kuzco:<token>@api.cp.zoneedit.com/dyn/generic.php?hostname=home.kuzco.net&myip=1.1.1.1

hope it helps

Thanks salighieiri, Tried that, same problem
Code:
https://kuzco:<token>@api.cp.zoneedit.com/dyn/generic.php?hostname=*.kuzco.net&myip=<ip>
200: <ERROR CODE="708" TEXT="Failed Login: admin" ZONE="*.kuzco.net">
Even waited 8 hours between attempts

I see you're passing *.kuzco.net...

Try one host at a time.

Also, I'm assuming your token is enabled (double check) and that your dns records are not host A records, but listed under the dynamic records section in zoneedit.

What worked for me was discussed in another thread on this forum.

Thanks for the help. All is fixed.

Apparently I am an idiot and had left some code from the 'get' to obtain the IP to update, now removed and working as expected.
