I don't want to to run an AD DC on firewall device, barely DHCP and
What you have pointed me to is similar to what I have in place:
and which is working fine.
NOW I want to switch DHCP from isc-dhcp-server 4.2.2 on Debian to DHCP
on pfSense firewall (based on FreeBSD 11.2) which reports as below:
pkg info | grep dhcp
dhcp6-20080615.2 KAME DHCP6 client, server, and relay
dhcpleases-0.3_1 read dhpcd.lease file and add it to hosts
dhcpleases6-0.1_2 read dhpcd6.leases file and trigger
command on modification
isc-dhcp43-client-4.3.6P1 The ISC Dynamic Host Configuration
isc-dhcp43-relay-4.3.6P1_1 The ISC Dynamic Host Configuration
isc-dhcp43-server-4.3.6P1_1 ISC Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
I've set it up and everything is working fine apart from DDNS integration.
PfSense web GUI is limiting my config choices to the following:
Enable: Check the box to enable registration of DHCP client names in DNS
using an external
(non-pfSense) DNS server.
DDNS Domain: The domain name used for registering clients in DNS
Primary DDNS Address: The DNS server used for registering clients in DNS
DNS Domain Key: The encryption key used for DNS registration
DNS Domain Key: Secret The secret for the key used for DNS registration
Does it mean it's not going to work as it doesn't involve Kerberos
Personally I would be happy with dynamic DNS updates being controlled by
DHCP secured with a shared secret only.
