How to properly set up DynDNS with Sophos XG

HI all, I have Sophos XG as my main router. I've been trying to set up The DynDNS with it as it supports a Zoneedit account. Ive tried using my ZoneEdit user/pass, as well as the User/Dyn Auth token provided via Zone Edit. For a few days now my DynDNS doesnt seem to recognize that I've set it up with Sophos and my domain remains parked. Help!

hi there

checking interval can be no less then 10 minutes but other then that it looks fine...

what is selected on the interface option? I am not familiar with that . and are there any error logs you can provide?

regards.

Hi, thanks for your time! Today I received the first success message, but my domain still points to the zone edit parked domain. Also I fixed it to check no less than 10 mins. Am I missing something? I will look through logs and see if I can see anything 323

How can I get it to point to the IP I want so I can host things? I thought setting up DynDNS was all that was needed :)

its (wildcard entry. ) pointing to 66.176.9.76 is that not your current IP?
Yep its my current IP however i still cant reach myself via that domain. Its pointing to parked.zoneedit.com (104.236.61.208). Could it be that since it took all this time to update i just now need to wait for all DNS to pick up the change?

If i check it against the default zone edit nameservers its still pointing to the parked.zoneedit.com
# nslookup
> server dns1.zoneedit.com
Default server: dns1.zoneedit.com
Address: 45.77.82.193#53
Default server: dns1.zoneedit.com
Address: 2001:19f0:9002:6ef:5400:1ff:fe34:85cb#53
> intrudir.com
Server: dns1.zoneedit.com
Address: 45.77.82.193#53

Name: intrudir.com
Address: 104.236.61.208

Am I misunderstanding something?

the wildcard update updates anything.domain.com.

as example:

ig @dns1.zoneedit.com a ttt.intrudir.com





; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> @dns1.zoneedit.com a ttt.intrudir.com


; (1 server found)


;; global options: +cmd


;; Got answer:


;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 31301


;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0


;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available





;; QUESTION SECTION:


;ttt.intrudir.com. IN A





;; ANSWER SECTION:


ttt.intrudir.com. 1200 IN A 66.176.9.76



you would want to send dyn updates for the root intrudir.com and the wildcard *.intrudir.com
