@ is already fixed -- see #6122

Try the fix on the ticket, if it works, this can be closed, if it still doesn't work for * then we can use this ticket for the * case.

That patch addresses the @ but not the *

Still does not work for *

  • Description updated (diff)
  • Category set to Dynamic DNS
  • Status changed from Feedback to New

OK I revised the ticket to be only for the * character.

  • Status changed from New to Confirmed
  • Target version changed from 2.3.1 to 2.3.2
  • Affected Version changed from 2.3 to All

that one's not as straight forward as changing the input validation, since the * needs changes in the back-end handling as well.

merged a slightly modified fix from PR 2770
https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/pull/2770

Not sure that suffices though. Could someone with a Namecheap DDNS setup please try the next 2.3.2 snapshot with and without wildcards?

Tested with pfSense-CE-2.3.2-DEVELOPMENT-amd64-20160702-0342 + Namecheap DDNS using `*` wildcard. Works! Testing was a little rough because the GUI (or PHP?) kept hanging on the status page, but I did check and confirm that the DNS was properly updated.

Thanks Luke.

The delay there is from dyndns's checkip service being very slow to respond, there is another ticket covering that.
