Multiple Dynamic DNS
Hi, I have more then one WAN and i want to bind them to different hostnames.
they are all DHCP..
blabla0.mine.nu > WAN
blabla1.mine.nu > WAN1
blabla2.mine.nu > WAN2
blabla3.mine.nu > WAN3
blabla4.mine.nu > WAN4
Can i manage multiple Dynamic DNS?

Under 1.2.x, I'm not sure, but I don't believe this is possible.
Under 2.0-Alpha-Alpha, I'm under the impression that this is under development. It doesn't seem to work yet, however, as any Interface other than the primary WAN with a dynamic DNS account attached, doesn't update correctly.
See thread: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,13126 for more details…

If you can specify an IP in the string you send to your DDNS provider it might be possible to customize http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,9729.msg55580.html#msg55580 (I've added it to the Fit123 package) to your needs.
but it uses bash scripts… so i have to get bash first?
im using 1.2.2
PS i dont know if i can send ip by string with dyndns :/

You might also want to consider http://dnsomatic.com/. It's a free service which basically replicates your dynamic DNS updates out to multiple recipients; so in theory, you could use it to send multiple updates to dyndns (I'm not familiar with how DynDNS product offerings). dns-o-matic uses the same API as DynDNS so even tho it doesn't work out of the box for pfSense, all you need to do is hack the hostname that the DynDNS configure points to.
Another possibility is to have those other hostnames all be CNAME's of one dynamic one. It wouldn't really work for anything which is also an MX (I think RFC 822 specifies that MX should not point to CNAMEs?); but it might suffice.
EveryDNS's dynamic system will also update multiple A records simultaneously. When you create a "dynamic domain", you can add additional records to the domain. If any of those additional records have the value "IP", it will also receive the same IP when a dynamic update occurs. EveryDNS is not supported in pfSense; so I run a script off my server. There API is pretty straight forward; so I was going to try and find time to add it to pfSense.
I made this:
I hope its not against the rules to make a new topic about it.
