Many months back I wrote about issues with FreePBX DDNS not updating and I have to admit that it is sort of a pain.
My brother had Cox Cable go down for awhile and when it came back, having a dynamic IP from Cox, got a new IP. Cox in the Phx area seem to drop a lot and Internet IP’s change a lot. In any event, for several days his PBX was not reporting the new IP, BUT the correct Internet IP was reported in the box. As a result, “things” just weren’t working well especially IAX. Forcing the new IP will eventually update the DNS servers in an hour or two.
In checking System Admin, DDNS, it showed the correct Internet IP but for some unknown reason it hadn’t updated any DNS servers. This is similar behavior that I wrote about and I think I posted a bug report. It’s been so long I just can’t remember.
Can anyone on the FreePBX team provide some insight into the built in DDNS and what might be happening all to frequently. Seems to take many hours before a DNS update occurs. In this case days and finally had to force it.
