 +The above did not work for me, on 4.4.36.5146617. But the following does 
 +  - Upgrade ddclient to 3.9.0 (from 3.8.3) 
 +  - Install the required dependency libdata-validate-ip-perl (Requires adding remotes, so make sure do not do upgrade of any packages) 
 +  - Make sure the subdomain you want to automatically is set to any value at cloudflare. 
 +  - Do the same config as above but **skip server** (as in remove that part of the json) 
 +  - Now it should work. 
 + 
 +If it complaints about <code> Invalid Value for keyword 'ip' = ''"</code> don't worry it has nothing to do with getting the dynamic dns working.
