#12568 new defect

ddns script http auth broken with busybox

Reported by: akostadinov@… Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Attitude Adjustment 12.09 Beta
Keywords: ddns Cc:


Hello, ddns does not work in default installation because most providers require http auth. With busybox wget though I see the following:

# /bin/wget  "http://[REDACTED]:[REDACTED][REDACTED HOST]&myip=[REDACTED IP]"
Connecting to (
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.0 401 Authorization Required

This problem does not exist when normal wget is installed. So IMO wget or curl should be a required package for ddns scripts package.

You are perhaps not aware of how huge OpenSSL is, and therefore curl or wget would causes images to fail fit in the 4 MB flash / 16 MB minimum router OpenWrt supports (well probably 32 MB RAM minimum for Barrier Break, but still 4 MB flash).

Have you tried to compile busybox wget with http auth?


I believe it's off by default - i grepped this one off my heavily modified .config.
