Upgrading to pfSense 2.4

When upgrading your pfSense installation to version 2.4 follow the below steps to ensure your DNSthingy continues to function.

Option #1

Access the web UI of your pfSense system directly by IP address. For example https://192.168.1.1:20443

After logging in, go to System / Package Manager

If there is an update available for the dnsthingy package go ahead and install it.

Option #2

Connect to your pfSense system using SSH or the console port.

Select option 13 to “Update from console”

This process will automatically update the dnsthingy package and reboot the system.
