The dhcpd.conf man page describes the possible values for ddns-update-style.
    You probably want 'none'.

If you are trying to renew across a firewall, and it's not working, it's 
probably because the firewall is blocking some of the packets.   If you 
deliberately chose not to follow the directions, there is some chance that 
this choice is what is causing the problem, although I will admit that the 
way you've described it, that doesn't seem to be the problem.   But please 
try following the instructions exactly and see if that fixes the problem.

If you have further questions, please ask them on the 
mailing list - this is the IETF DHC working group mailing list, which 
exists to discuss the DHCP protocol, not specific implementations of the 
protocol such as the ISC DHCP server.   :'/
