thanks, this works!

Tested in arch-linux, their recent wget package has already this patch applied, so testing was rather easy!

Thank you again, feel free to close the ticket!

When reading protected pages wget 1.19 does not try to read supplied ~/.netrc anymore, while in wget 1.18 (and earlier) this worked just fine

The command to run is

wget -d --user-agent="no-ip DUC shell script/1.0 djfd mail.ru" --https-only "https://myhost@dynupdate.no-ip.com/nic/update?hostname=myhost.ddns.net&myip=vv.xx.yy.zz" --save-headers

-d and --save-headers are meant to see debugging data and behaviour change

also please see the logs attached
