How to update mydns.se?



  • I'm new to pfsense and have a question I can't find any answer on.

    I earlier used an old linux firewall (FreeSCO) and there I used snarf to to execute http command.

    I use a dynamic dns service named http://mydns.se which have a very simple update as this sample shows running lynx with crontab.

    53 17 * * lynx -dump "http://mydns.se/u.php?h=MYDNSNAME.mydns.se&p=MYPASSWORD"

    Is it possible to run this as a command in pfsense?
    Is it possible to use any one of the dynamic dns clients to get this?

    I can't find any lynx in pfsense (or in packets) and I'm not familiar with FreeBSD.

    You can use the cron package to manage cron entries.

    And for that kind of task you can use the "fetch" command or perhaps links (we include links, not lynx, they are similar but not identical)

    I think I'll manage to do what I wanted now.
