With pfSense 2.3.2, the DynDNS system does not work with Amazon Route53 services. In looking through the logs and then the code to determine what my issue is, it appears that the pfSense support for Route53 was grafted in from a PHP module on Sourceforge that appears to be defunct. The r53.class module does not support most of the logging/checking system in dyndns.class which makes debugging very difficult. This issue being opened after discussions in 3973 and 6728. This issue aims to make available for discussion and hopeful inclusion new code that is written for pfSense to do basic DNS updates to Route53.
