Another Dynamic DNS provider (DTDNS)

  • Hi,

    I need to use dtdns as dynamic dns provider because is the only one who provides wildcards for free accounts, so i modified the /etc/inc/dyndns.class to change the "noip" url for ip address update to make it work for dtdns.
    It works perfectly, but it's an ugly hack. I tried to fully integrate it but failed miserably breaking everything and having to reinstall…

    These are the changes i've made in the function _update()
    Except the commented line, the $server variable  and the  curl_setop line are the only changes.

     case 'noip':
                                            $needsIP = TRUE;
                                            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE);
                                            $server = "";
                                            $port = "";
                                                    $server = $this->_dnsServer;
                                                    $port = ":" . $this->_dnsPort;
                                            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $server . '?id=' . $this->_dnsHost. '&pw=' . urlencode($this->_dnsPass));
                                            $data = curl_exec($ch);
                                            if (@curl_error($ch)) log_error("Curl error occurred: " . curl_error($ch));

    It's pretty straightforward, and works perfectly (at least in my setup) but it's not "how it is supposed to be".
    Can someone point me to the files i need to modify so that i can provide a nice clean patch?

    Thanks (for this and also for the whole pfSense!)

  • Ok, i managed to add it correctly i think…
    It now shows up in the dyndns provider list, and checks return codes correctly. And noip is not fake anymore.

    The only problem i had is that here at work we use for lan (used as WAN in pfsense), and this ip is not correctly detected as private by is_private_ip(). are we incorrectly using this ip class or is the is_private_ip function wrong?

    Sorry if i don't provide a diff against sources, but i'm not a developer i just have basic "change existing code" skills.
    I copied back and forth the files using ssh and edited them.
