Hello,

When I try to update DynFi I get this message in the GUI

Can you try to ping "packages.dynfi.com" from the CLI ?

I am suspecting a problem with DNS resolution.

I'm not home right now where my Firewall is located. But from work I got these results :

Code: Select all

nslookup packages.dynfi.com
Serveur :   xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Address:  aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd

Réponse ne faisant pas autorité :
Nom :    packages.dynfi.com
Address:  188.165.99.10

Code: Select all

ping packages.dynfi.com

Envoi d’une requête 'ping' sur packages.dynfi.com [188.165.99.10] avec 32 octets de données :
Délai d’attente de la demande dépassé.
Délai d’attente de la demande dépassé.
Délai d’attente de la demande dépassé.
Délai d’attente de la demande dépassé.

Statistiques Ping pour 188.165.99.10:
    Paquets : envoyés = 4, reçus = 0, perdus = 4 (perte 100%),
I also did the same from my phone connected via VPN to my DynFi firewall and got the same results. Same without VPN connected

I've also looked up on a couple DNS record lookup websites, each of them give the same IP address.

Sorry, ping is blocked by our firewalls.

If DNS is working, you should try to check if you can reach port 80 which is used for package install:

Code: Select all

# nc -vz 188.165.99.10 443
Connection to 188.165.99.10 port 80 [tcp/http] succeeded!

I connected via SSH to the firewall effectively there is a some DNS misshap.

So I digged a bit further, I had the "Do not use local DNS for this device" checked. But it seem the firewall didn't use the "outside" DNS listed to poll for DNS records.

Thank for your valuable help. And sorry for the stupid question and time lost.
