Pfsense dynamic dns not updating
At “Service type“, select a DDNS service provider from the dropdown box.
At “Interface to monitor“, specify an interface (typically the WAN).
But another type of dynamic DNS permits lightweight and immediate updates to its local database, often using a web-based mechanism.
It is used to resolve a domain name to an IP address that may change frequently, thus providing a persistent addressing method for devices that change their location or configuration.
At “Hostname“, specify the hostname (either one supplied by the provider or your own hostname) that you wish to associate with your network’s public IP.
At “MX“, set your MX record if you need one (thus allowing you to configure your subdomain for email routing) and if your service supports it. This is useful if the domain name specified is not a fully qualified domain name (FQDN); for example, if your DDNS address is myplace.and you enable wildcards, then x.myplace.will work as well (x is the wildcard).
Dynamic DNS providers offer a software client program that automates the discovery and registration of the client system’s public IP addresses.
Of course I have a local GNU/Linux server that will be used for this and I used BIND9 to setup the DNS server.Many home networking modem/routers have clients for several DDNS providers built into their firmware, and pf Sense is no exception, making it very easy to use DDNS with pf Sense. If the “Dyn DNS” tab is not selected already, click on it.Press the “plus” button on the right side of the page to add a new DDNS client.At “Username” and “Password“, specify your username (username is required for all types except Namecheap and Free DNS) and password.At “Description“, enter an appropriate description. Then press the “Save” button to save the settings and, on the next page, press “Apply Changes” to apply the changes if necessary. If the cached IP is green then the hostname was successfully updated.
