DynamicDNS clients (easyDNS wildcard fix)

  • Hi just installed PFSense this sunday and at least for a laymen really amazing what you can do with it in a day.

    One issue I did hit was on easyDNS dynamicDNS wildcard update was not processing.

    From easyDns website http://support.easydns.com/tutorials/dynamicUpdateSpecs.php

    wildcard = either "ON" or "OFF", if "ON" sets a wildcard host record for the domain being updated equal to the IP address specified in "myip"

    The original was sending a 1 for ON, so I added this and it works, but forewarned I don't know PHP.

    if (isset($this->_dnsWildcard)) $this->_dnsWildcard = "ON";

    I also changed the server based on an email from easyDNS, but I think the existing one worked as well.

    $server = "http://api.cp.easydns.com/dyn/tomato.php";

    The case statement in: function updatedns

                                    case 'easydns':
                                            $needsIP = TRUE;
                                            if (isset($this->_dnsWildcard)) $this->_dnsWildcard = "ON";
                                            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE);
                                            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, $this->_dnsUser.':'.$this->_dnsPass);
                                            $server = "http://api.cp.easydns.com/dyn/tomato.php";
                                            $port = "";
                                                    $server = $this->_dnsServer;
                                                    $port = ":" . $this->_dnsPort;
                                            //log_error("Updating easydns wildcard right before send: {$this->_dnsWildcard}");
                                            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $server . $port . '?hostname=' . $this->_dnsHost . '&myip=' . $this->_dnsIP . '&wildcard=' . $this->
    _dnsWildcard . '&mx=' . $this->_dnsMX . '&backmx=' . $this->_dnsBackMX);

    Anyways great product, thanks for all the effort.
