Do not be surprised if the following error appears in the Fritz!Box log:
Dynamic DNS-Fehler: Die Dynamic DNS-Aktualisierung war erfolgreich, anschließend trat jedoch ein Fehler bei der DNS-Auflösung auf.
This is normal because the DNS server don’t deliver the updated IP immediately.
This takes a few seconds up to 5 minutes.
