DNS Server Complete NOOB & NEWBI help



  • Hi guys

    i have come acrros a problem, well i can´t really call it a problem, as i am shure there must be a workeable solution..

    I have setup Pfsense and its running great for the last month uptime non stop,

    i have setup anoter linux pc machine for virtualhosting now, i have installed ISPconfig3 and i have setup 1 website .

    so i have registered a .com domain for my site  www.mysite.com , the registration went through fine after payment was done hehe.

    now i have 2 dns servers that was given by the domain company.

    my question now is how do i setup or route in the pfsense config system to hook up my IP address from my ISP to my domain…

    by the way i am using a dynamic ip, so it changes once every 2 weeks.

    i have also setup a dyndns dinamic account which works great on the pfsense it updates instant.. is there a way to route my domain www.mysite.com to my dyndns stuff ?

    any help will be appreciated if there is any function available on Pfsense to help redirecting it to my IP address located on the server machine.

    That would be done in DNS - setup a CNAME for www.mysite.com that points it to your dyndns hostname.

    So a client looks for www.mysite.com, gets CNAME somewhere.dyndns.org, then looks up somewhere.dyndns.org and gets back your real IP.
