TLD Forwarding to Dyndns is being blocked
I setup pfSense on my virtual host and I am extremely pleased with it aside from one issue, which is that my vpn.foo.com domain requests die at the firewall. So the setup is this:
vpn.foo.com forwards to xxx.dyndns.org which is configured to update with my external DHCP IP.
This has worked in the past with my DD-WRT routers, but now, vpn.foo.com times out, but xxx.dyndns.org comes right through the firewall properly.
Any ideas or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
well does your local name resolution think its authoritative for foo.com for some reason? This is a common mistake made, so you setup foo.com with some dyndns provider and then sure why not lets use foo.com as my local domain in pfsense –- so pfsense.foo.com, now when you ask pfsense hey what about xxx.foo.com, he sends back no records for xxx.foo.com since I am the authoritative nameserver for foo.com why should I go ask anyone else about it.
johnpoz, thanks for the reply.
I ended up resolving this issue by changing the NAT reflection from 'System Default' to 'Pure NAT'.
