Resolv DNS to interface ip

  • Hi all,

    I want to resolve a DNS name in the form to the IP address of a PPP interface, that has dynamic ip.
    I could use in the advanced configuration of the DNS resolver service something like this:

    local-data: " A INTERFACE_IP"

    where INTERFACE_IP is some placeholder for the link to the interface ip, what shall I put there? would it work?
    Any other idea is also welcome..

    No, there are no placeholders. Kindly go to Services - Dynamic DNS, pick of of the zillion providers there and us it.

  • I know what you mean, but that wont work in my setup, because I dont have internet access from that interface, and IP can not be checked from (or something like that..), plus, it is a private ip..

    This is my scenario, to make things clear:
    2 wan interfaces, 1 has internet access, the other not, both in ppp. I want to resolve on one of my subdomains the ip of that interface. DNS forwarder already set up in the server machine on the same network of pfsense.

    Any suggestion?

    No, beyond "run your own dynamic DNS server". (Not really sure what you are doing with your dynamic PPP interface that does not have internet access.)
