Pfsense Dyndns x No-ip



  • Hello!
    My network is configured as follows:
    LAN = 172.16.0.0 \ 24
    WAN = 192.168.1.200 ADSL LINK

    I use no-ip.org to manage my hosts
    The configuration of my Dyndns in pfsense is not working, pfsense is by setting my ADSL IP (192.168.1.200) instead of my external IP, eg 201.78.22x.xxx

    Here log pfsense

    Jan 10 14:27:36 php [36677]: / services_dyndns.php: dyndns: Current WAN IP: 192.168.1.200  <- Its wrong
    Jan 10 14:27:36 php [36677]: / services_dyndns.php: dyndns: No IP Cached found.
    Jan 10 14:27:36 php [36677]: / services_dyndns.php: dyndns: cacheIP! = wan_ip. Updating.
    Jan 10 14:27:36 php [36677]: / services_dyndns.php: dyndns: Initial run. Updating.
    Jan 10 14:27:36 php [36677]: / services_dyndns.php: dyndns, dyndns _update () starting.

    Thanks…

    Hi..

    1.2.3-RELEASE
    built on Sun Dec 6 23:21:36 EST 2009



  • For pfSense 1.2.3 with the Fit123 package installed I produced a patch to retrieve the public IP address from http://myip.dnsomatic.com rather than the WAN interface and use that to update an entry on dnsomatic. You could register your DNS service at dnsomatic or hack the patch to update your no-ip registration. Details are at http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,17175.0.html



  • i have a problem with pfsense & no-ip, sometimes my ip address change and not update in no-ip.biz, someone have any idea…



  • Do you have a router between pfSense WAN interface and Internet? If so pfSense won't normally see changes in the public IP address.

    I'm using a pfSense 2.0 snapshot build and the following description applies to pfSense 2.0 which I presume you are using.

    When last I looked, if the WAN interface has a private IP address then the public IP address gets polled (by visiting a web site that return just the public IP address) at 1am with a change in public IP address triggering a DNS update (if dynamic DNS is configured).

    If you have a modem between pfSense WAN interface and the internet then the WAN interface probably has a public IP address and pfSense can see when that IP address changes and immediately trigger a dynamic DNS update.

    I use a dynamic DNS service. I used to have an ADSL modem/router (acting as a router) between the pfSense WAN interface and the Internet. I changed it to a modem to get prompt dynamic DNS updates.
