Using ACME in pfSense with deSEC

I was wondering if anyone had experience with issuing/renewing a Let’s Encrypt certificate in pfSense using the ACME package. There is a method for available but I get an error message:

[Mon Jun 7 22:01:52 CEST 2021] Adding record
[Mon Jun 7 22:01:52 CEST 2021] Add txt record error.
[Mon Jun 7 22:01:52 CEST 2021] Error add txt for domain:_acme-challenge.my_domain

I googled now for a while to find a solution but no luck so far. Any suggestions?


Downloading the latest version of to /usr/local/pkg/acme/dnsapi fixed it for me.

pfSense also merged support for deSEC dynDNS a few days ago. I’m not sure whether this covers ACME challenges, but still wanted to post the reference in case it helps.

Stay secure,
