Hello Peplink Colleagues,
How many of you are aware that the DynDNS services will finish operation at the end of May 2020 worldwide? It is one of the DDNS options many may still use on the WAN settings of their Peplink/Pepwave routers.
Oracle (who purchased DYN in 2016) is shutting down all remaining accounts on 31 May 2020 that are still in operation. The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure platform on offer does not cover what many have been doing with the DynDNS systems (we are among many paying customers devastated at the decision, though we are moving forward).
With this change coming, we all have another good reason to look at how the Peplink FusionHub with SpeedFusion can remove some of the past needs for DDNS. By using a FusionHub, it allows multiple remote ends that are on dynamic IPs (and even when behind a NAT) to centralise on a shared IP(s) that you can then share as an MSP.
I am optimistic that the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure may evolve in time, though it is in writing from Oracle on their website that currently the remaining DYN systems cannot be moved.
There’s more information available on this announcement at:
- Wikipedia “In June 2019, Oracle announced Dyn DNS services would be shutting down in 2020” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyn_(company)
- Google (and other search engines) “oracle to shutdown DynDNS” https://www.google.com.au/search?safe=active&q=oracle+to+shutdown+DynDNS
We are working with several clients to move and decommission where we can all remaining DynDNS services ASAP. We would be interested to hear what other Peplink Partners and customers are doing and alternative DDNS services that are working well for them with their Peplink/Pepwave equipment.
Can Peplink share with us all what service they use for the Peplink DDNS service : Find my Peplink running though InControl2?
There are many previous posts here in the forum about using DDNS services, though we felt a new thread was worthy of this topic.
Happy to Help,
