Dynamic DNS Client for Route 53 ipv6



  • I am trying to use the Dynamic DNS Client for Route 53, but can't seem to get it to update ipv6 addresses.  I've checked all documentation and can't find anything that says this isn't supported.  Does anyone know if it is/isn't or how to get it working?

    Thanks!

  • Why do you even need dynamic DNS for IPv6?  You should have static, MAC based addresses you point the DNS at.  I've been using IPv6 for 7 years and never had a need for dynamic DNS.



  • I use charter which issues DHCP Ipv6 addresses.  They change all the time. :(

    Do you have "Do not allow PD/Address release" on the WAN tab selected?



  • Yes.  I imagine this is not uncommon.  It appears numerous Dynamic DNS clients in pfSense support IPv6.  I am uncertain why Route53 doesn't.  (Maybe it does, but I am selecting something incorrectly..)



  • I (re)wrote most of the r53.class that appears in 2.3.4 and at the moment it only supports IPv4 addresses. Adjusting the code to support AAAA records is the setting of a variable instead of a hard-coded A. The real work is all of the hooks into dyndns.class to support a Route53 IPv6 flavor, which is work that hasn't been done yet. I was thinking about doing it, but haven't had the time yet.

    That explains it, thank you.  At least that means I am not doing something wrong.
