DNS-O-MATIC dynamicDNS service



  • Hi i have problem configuring DNS-O-Matic service. It doesn’t get an update. I’ve created O-Matic account witch updates my NO-IP and OPEN-Dns account but in pfsense I can’t configure it. I’ve set it up as shown in atached picture.

    How long have you waited?

    What is the IP address of your WAN interface? What is the interface type (DHCP?, Static? PPPoE? …)

    If the IP address of the WAN interface is private dynamic DNS updates happen at 1AM.

    The pfSense shell command clog /var/log/system.log | grep -i dyndns will show the dynamic dns entries from the system log. They may provide a bit more information about the update failure.



  • Wan address is pppoe but the problem is with setup I doesn’t pass authentication I red somewhere that the problem is with username with @ character but on opendns doesn’t allow anything else except email as username.
    So my question is how to configure O-matic account in pfsense.

    You have to register with dnsomatic - this is a separate registration from your OpenDNS registration.

    Your OpenDNS registration allows you to change the characteristics of the filtering OpenDNS applies to name service requests from your registered IP address. Your DNS O Matic registration provides a way for you to notify a number of DNS providers (including OpenDNS) a change in your IP address.

    I think you are wrong cose this is on their account page "OpenDNS accounts work seamlessly at DNS-O-Matic". Just to be sure that you understood me I can  login over web site O-Matic but something is wrong with my setup (1st pic on this topic) or this doesn’t work on pfSense.



  • @Piplfox:

    I red somewhere that the problem is with username with @ character but on opendns doesn’t allow anything else except email as username.

    I login to OpenDNS and DNS-O-Matic with a username (all alphabetic characters, no "@"). I update my dynamic IP registrations from pfSense through DNS-O-Matic. The pfSense configuration specifies a username, not an email address.

    Account creation at http://www.dnsomatic.com asks for username, email and password. Perhaps it is necessary to create a DNS-O-Matic account so you can give a username (not an email address) to the pfSense dynamic DNS updater.
