Description

I use dy.fi dynamic DNS service. It requires refreshing the IP every 7 days (even if it does not change) or it is released.

I have configured this via Custom 'Service Type' in the Dynamic DNS Clients. It works, but the update interval would seem to be hardcoded to 25 days based on the system log ("rc.dyndns.update: phpDynDNS (): No change in my IP address and/or 25 days has not passed. Not updating dynamic DNS entry. "). At least I did not find any practical way to configure this value.

Could it be possible to get this value configurable for the custom option?

I found at least the following: https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/blob/6c4ccc9f76786f940a358698b6e2a7f0245b626d/src/etc/inc/services.inc. Around line 2643 there is "$maxCacheAgeSecs = 25 * 24 * 60 * 60;". I edited that via Diagnostics->Edit File to be 7 days. This did not change the log texts (not sure if it still actually works, has not been 7 days since). Log text would appear to come from https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/blob/45ff6b8f1d574b3786d25286abc4978427675974/src/etc/inc/dyndns.class around line 2165.

(PFSense version 2.4.4-RELEASE (amd64))

P.S. I have previously used dd-wrt, which did have the option to select update interval in days. Also sorry in case making the issue was incorrect procedure.
