cloud DDNS name issue with iPhone VPN settings?

Wed Jun 27, 2018 9:51 am

I got a strange problem when trying to get VPN work with an iPhone.
I am using the Mikrotik cloud DDNS service to keep the IP up to date.
The DDNS updates work well and i checkt that DDNS name matches the actual IP.
But when i use the Mikrotik DDNS name in the VPN server settings of the iPhone, it does not find the server.
However when i directly enter the IP instead of the DDNS name, it works well.

I guess there is a problem with the naming Mikrotik uses for the DDNS.
There are points used in the naming that might make the iPhone think it should tread the entered string as an IP address?

Is there an alternative naming possible so that i can still use the built in Mikrotik DDNS service?

Are you sure you copied it correctly? It works fine for me!

Yes, checked it countless times.
Maybe it's because i am running beta versions of iOS on my devices...
