Hi. I have set up a ddns service on my OpnSense router, using the "custom" option and following the instructions for pfsense. Is there a way to test if I have set it up correctly? I've used the "force update", but in my dynu dashboard the time of last update remains the same as when I initially set up my account. I have tried rebooting my modem, but my isp gives me the same IP address each time.

If your ISP gives you the same IP on router reboot, is it possible that you have a static IP address?

Nope, pretty sure its not static. Just doesn't change much. Guess I'm going to have to wait until it changes to see if my setup works properly.

ISP changed IP early this morning, and my OPNsense setup reported the change. Seems I'm up and running.
