Simple DDNS (dyndns) question

Hi all.

I have a quick question.

I have created a user on dyndns.org.

Lets say the login name is  (This is an example)  : Jarl
Then i have added a subdomain called (This is an example) : 123.dyndns.org

I have added the ip adress so its pointing at my network here - if i make a ping i will get answer on port 80 ! Great.

Now i want to setup my IP camera, and want to add this user into - so it will update the ip adress (This is the way i have understood it works)

The DDNS section is asking me for some things.

[HOSTNAME]  > What hostname should i add here ? jarl.dyndns.org ? or 123.dyndns.org ?
[Username] > I will guess that will be 123.dyndns.org ?
[Password] > The password i have hostet my user account with ?!

When i see in the log i get the message :

<DDNS> User name and password isn't correct.
<DDNS> User name and password isn't correct.
<DDNS> User name and password isn't correct.

Can you please assist me with the correct information!

Thank you
