Gratisdns DDNS not working properly



  • Hi,

    When I setup DDNS on gratisdns it never caches the current IP and I get the following errors in syslog:

    /services_dyndns_edit.php: phpDynDNS (hjemmelab.dk): (Unknown Response)
    
    /services_dyndns_edit.php: phpDynDNS (hjemmelab.dk): PAYLOAD: ^M <title>403 Forbidden</title>^M ^M 
    
    <center>
    
    # 403 Forbidden
    
    </center>
    
    ^M 
    
    * * *
    
    <center>nginx/1.10.1</center>
    
    ^M ^M ^M
    

    If I create a custom DDNS entry with this URL it works perfectly.

    https://ssl.gratisdns.dk/ddns.phtml?u=USERNAME&p=PASSWORD&d=DOMAIN&h=HOSTNAME&i=%ip%
    

    What am I doing wrong?



  • For anyone googling and finding this post the solution is to put a FQDN in the hostname field, and also put the domain in the domain field.

    It will look a bit weird in the Dynamic DNS Clients overview, such as: forum.pfsense.org.pfsense.org but it will work.
