AirVPN DDNS w/ Multiple Servers on pfSense Box

Recommended Posts

Right now, I've got connections to two AirVPN servers running on my pfSense box via its OpenVPN client.  I'm trying to figure out DDNS so I can connect my phones remotely to that box and thus to AirVPN.  I did some searches here about AirVPN's DDNS service and I found two threads where someone said this:


Warning: DDNS doesn't work correctly with two o more connections.


But, looking at the Forwarded Ports/DDNS articles referenced here, I don't see that phrase.  Specifically, this article:




Is it possible for me to use AirVPN's DDNS service with my current setup (two concurrent VPN connections in one pfSense box)?  Or, do I need something from some other DDNS provider?

It's hard to tell where a connection will end if there are two or three IPs which can be reached by one DDNS name.

I think you need another DDNS provider unless someone found a workaround.

That's what I was leaning towards.  It's just odd that the warning message I saw referenced isn't in the document any more (that I can see).

Simple solution, if you know what server you are connected to and it remains the same:


i.e. wezen_exit.airvpn.org:12345 will get you to the session of the forwarded port for that connection.
