SSL Mismatch for DDNS


#1

My DDNS is supported through dyndnss.net. The IP address that I have for deare.dyndnss.net is 73.199.208.160. I have my SSL cert for that DNS through Lets Encrypt. The issue that I have is that when I look at SSL checker, I get the following message “deare.dyndnss.net resolves to 95.216.17.186”. Looking further into this situation I have found that “The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website’s address.” Can this be fixed as soon as possible so that I can access my server through my DDNS with security.

Hi @ddeare

checking your nameserver entries this is wrong:

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout
deare.dyndnss.net A 95.216.17.186 yes 1 0
AAAA yes
www.deare.dyndnss.net A 95.216.17.186 yes 1 0
AAAA yes

Your name servers:

You have to change your dns settings, so that the 73.* - ip address is the address of your domain.

The 95.* ip has a certificate

CN=traffic-exchanger.com
	20.11.2018
	18.02.2019
	traffic-exchanger.com, www.traffic-exchanger.com - 2 entries

Looks like a domain forwarding or something else. You must set the A record to 73.*

This is NOT in sync with their system.
Are you using their IP sync tool?: https://dyndnss.net/eng/updater-tool.php

My account updates manually through the web interface. Using that interface, I have updated the account several times. I have an open support request to resolve.

Where is this

http://deare.dyndnss.net  A 95.216.17.186

combination defined? The nameserver is ns3.nsentry.de.

There you have to change something.

If you look at the HTML on http://deare.dyndnss.net/, it’s a dyndnss.net forwarding service. It includes http://73.199.208.160 within an iframe.

So the IP address is correct, but the setup is wrong. It’s an HTTP forwarding service instead of just an A record.

This has got to be the worst DDNS service (option) ever created.

DynDNS Updater Url
Emphasis on URL.
It doesn’t set the FQDN to your IP (like most other DDNS services).
It sets the FQDN to a page that links to a URL (that wraps your IP URL in a frame).

Site URL produces a page like:
[abbreviated for clarity]

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC ...>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="de" lang="de">

</head>
<frameset rows="100%,*">

The site uses the term “DynDNS” which seems to conflict with Oracles use of that same term:
