Dynamic DNS setting

Post by MikeL » Tue Feb 12, 2019 3:44 pm

On the setup page for Dynamic DNS Function in SoftEther VPN Server Manager I changed the Dynamic DNS Hostname associated with my server to something that was more easily remembered. Let's say it was abcd.softether.net
For the past few weeks I have been able to connect from my softether clients using that hostname.
Early this morning the external IP address of the site where my Softether server is hosted was changed by the ISP. I can no longer login in using the abcd.softether.net hostname.

Now when I go to the Dynamic DNS function setup page on the server it shows a new DNS hostname of the form vpnxxxxxxxxx.softether,net and showing the new IPV4 global address. If I try to change the hostname assigned back to abcd.softether.net i get an error message saying saying that hostname is already in use. If I do a DNS query on abcd.softether.net it returns the old IP address associated with my server site.

This is not the way I would expect Dynamic DNS to work. Have I misunderstood something?

Thanks
Mike
