HOW TO: Enom dynamic DNS updating
Dagorlad last edited by
If your dns nameservers are name-services.com (Enom), this may help to get DDNS working. First you'll have to create a domain password, I did that years ago and don't remember how that was done.
The Enom doc is here: http://www.enom.com/help/faq_dynamicdns.asp
To make this work in pfSense 2.1:
go to sevices -> Dynamic DNS and start a new entry.
select the service type "custom"
select WAN for both interfaces
for the Update URL enter:
replacing %server.domain.tld% with the DNS entry you wish to make/update and %password% with your domain password, leave %IP%.

I’m a new user to pfSense and wanted to share my experience trying to get v2.2 working with enom. I am posting this in this thread, even though it is older to keep the information in one location.
I was unable to get the procedure above to work. I had enom updating working with Tomato on a Asus RT-N16 with no issues.
This is the procedure I used to get it to work in pfSense.
Create a new entry with the following options in Services: Dynamic DNS client
DDNS Service: -> Custom Interface to monitor: -> WAN Interface to send update from: -> WAN User Name: -> anything Password -> anything Update URL: -> dynamic.name-services.com/interface.asp?Command=SetDNSHost&Zone=YOURDOMAINNAME&DomainPassword=YOURACCESSPASSWORD&HostName=*
YOURDOMAINNAME = The domain you have on enom.
YOURACCESSPASSWORD = Login to enom and go to “my domains”. On the right hand side, there is a drop down where you can select “General Setting” Set a strong unique password in the “Set Access Password” field. I did this a long time ago an believe this is where I did it.
After you save and force an update, you should see the updated IP results on the “Manage Domain -> Host Records” screen on enom.
