DynDNS [Resolved - Windows Firewall - Radmin had no permission]



  • Hi.

    Anyone having a issue using DynDNS service on 2.0 RC1?

    After the most recent upgrade, the NAT / Firewall rules are still there for Radmin and the DynDNS account. Just can't make that connection anymore.

    Anyone having similar issues?

    jits.

    What issue are you having? I use DNS-O-matic to update my DynDNS entry and that apparently works fine.

    @jits:

    How do you update your DynDNS registration? If you do it from your LAN or pfSense through a web page why do you need firewall rules?



  • Sorry. The firewall rules are there for Radmin. Not DynDNS.

    DNS-O-Matic? Man, these guys think of everything!

    I'll triple check again after the current upgrade completes. Thank You.

    I'm using OpenDNS for web filtering and I have dynamic public IP address so I use DNS-O-matic to update my DynDNS, OpenDNS and No-IP registrations in one "hit". Yes, its a very useful service.



  • Finally got some time to sit down and scratch on this problem.

    I am able to use openvpn to log into other location and ping target IP via Dyndns. ICMP returns are seen and are also seen in pftop.
    Then, I used radmin at other location, again, via openvpn, and attempt to log into system here, where I am. No connection error seen at remote location. However, pftop see's the attempt.

    I then uninstall Commodo firewall, restart, and re-try. Again, no connection error, pftop see's attempt.

    I then, using windows 7, navigate to windows firewall and check the permissions. I almost mistake radmin viewer as the correct program, but this is incorrect as I am looking for rserver, which is located, in my system, inside the syswow64 folder.

    Rserver is not listed as allowed. Rserver added as allowed and… bread, butter and cheese..it works!

    So, I apologize for being too quick to hit RC2. She has had some rough days in the past, but this young lady is maturing nicely.  :)
