    While that's cool you made your own solution... Firewalla already provides Dynamic DNS as a built in feature.

    From the home screen of the app click the More icon. Then, click DDNS. Firewalla gives you a unique and persistent sub-domain address. This will always point to your current IP address for when you're out of your home network.

    Yes, I’m aware but I wanted a “friendly” name that was easy to type and remember and this is under my domain,

    Not sure if it will solve all your issues, but you can create a CNAME entry under your domain and point it to the firewalla name.

    Thanks Aaron! I hadn't considered that. Seems to work.

    TBH, someone had to suggest that for me as well.  :)  Glad it's working!

    Indeed. Bonus, Cloudflare allows me to use their proxy for a CNAME so I get some extra firewall protection with this method. That, plus not having to run my script (one less process) is great. Thanks again.
