nsupdate.info issue with Core 109

Post by Roberto Peña » February 28th, 2017, 9:19 am

Good morning to all

I do not know if it will have to do with the Core 109, but it worked OK until the update.

I've tried deleting it, re-creating it, forcing the update, editing the parameters, changing DNSs, but with no results. After x time, it stops working for an "ABUSE".

I put captures:

nsupdate02.png
nsupdate02.png (9.99 KiB) Viewed 1679 times
nsupdate03.png
nsupdate03.png (5.62 KiB) Viewed 1679 times
Any ideas.

Thank you all.

Hello Roberto,

the issue you described seems to be independent from the Core Update level, since it occurred to me several times with Core 100 and 103.

The provider, nsupdate.info, requires its customers not to send updates if the IP address hasn't changed. Unfortunaly, the DynDNS updating program seems to do that because it checks if the DynDNS provider applied the new IP address correctly.

After being blocked by nsupdate.info several times and a bunch of emails exchanged between me and its owner (some of them were quite long), I moved to DESEC (https://desec.io/). Partly because of security considerations, since they provide DNSSEC support for the DynDNS, too, which makes the IP address lookup more secure.

If this isn't an option for you, good luck! :)

Best regards,
Timmothy Wilson

You're welcome.

In the wiki page for the DynDNS provider settings, I added a note about problems with nsupdate.info. Hopefully this might help other users, too.

Best regards,

Good morning Timmothy.

A question. Do you have a management console like nsupdate.info?

I'm using it and it works perfectly. But I miss a management console.

I have registered in the Free Plan, but I do not know how to manage it.

Any ideas.

Thank you very much.

Hello,

as far as I'm concerned, there is no management console.

The DynDNS free plan just offers a free A/AAAA-record (IPv4/IPv6), so there is no need for it. Updates are performed via a Web-API.

Management operations such as "disable account" or "change mail address" would be nice, however,
it seems like this is not possible at the moment. Maybe if you write them an email... ???

Best regards,
Timmothy Wilson
