Currently on 14.1.1 if you configure Dynamic DNS to use FreeDNS and enter everything in, nothing in the web UI will tell you if you it updated or not. Guess what? It's NOT updating! It's broken. Seems that in the web UI selecting FreeDNS actually causes the protocol "dyndns2" to be set in /etc/ddclient.conf which doesn't work with FreeDNS. Changing the protocol in ddclient.conf to "freedns" instead works. I've spent a few hours testing this.

Bad ddclient.conf FreeDNS settings created by the web UI:

pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid
use=web web=myip.dnsomatic.com/
protocol=dyndns2
login=login
password=password
ssl=yes
server=freedns.afraid.org
my.domain

GOOD ddclient FreeDNS settings hand-edited sia SSH:
