EasyDNS Support



  • Hi,

    I have been trying to get easyDNS (Dynamic DNS) working, and after discussing it with easyDNS a bit, they pointed out that there are two different interfaces to use … as below,

    1. Legacy interface, uses login password, to be discontinued at some point -> this is the interface pfSense currently uses
      http://support.easydns.com/tutorials/dynamicUpdateSpecs.php

    2. "New" interface (API), uses Authentication Token (not user password), recommended interface from easyDNS.
      http://mediawiki.easydns.com/index.php/Dynamic_DNS

    Is it possible to add support for the new interface (2 above)? Perhaps keep the old one, add the new one as something like "easyDNS (API)"?

    Thanks!



  • Has there been any update to this in the recently released versions?
    I am also looking for the same functionality with EasyDNS under their new system.



  • This seems to be working.

    I just used the authentication token instead of the password.



  • I find the legacy method of dyndns with easydns works. I cannot find references to their newer Authentication Token approach, so I wonder if they backed out of that?

    The problem I have with easydns & dyndns with pfsense is that if I give a subdomain of my domain, it works. but I want my base domain to sync and that fails. Instead of showing my current public IP, when I have it sync my base domain, the latest Cached IP is red and reads as 0.0.0.0.

    (by base domain, I mean munch.com as opposed to a subdomain, like butt.munch.com)

    Update: I think I don't see easyDNS's authentication token for dynDNS because I'm not paying for that level of service. They have a higher tier that expressly supports dynamic DNS, whereas the basic one I'm on, does not.
