Trying to create entry for DDNS for pfSense firewall

I added an A record and now my DNS points to my domain and static IP address to my pfSense firewall. I can ping it the pfsense subdomain which I created pfsense dot mywebsite dot com and I also have my ports open for http and https, but when I type it into my url of my browser it does not work.

Do I need to delate all other DNS records except that one? So only have the A, and delete the CNAME, MX, and TXT?

When I type in my actual static IP it goes to my pfSense firewall, but this DDNS does not.

Thanks, Ed

What doesn’t work? What error do you receive?

Hi thanks for responding. When I type my subdomain dot domain dot com into my url. I wasn’t getting any errors but now I just tried it and I get this:

Origin is unreachable Error code 523

The origin web server is not reachable.

What can I do?

If you’re a visitor of this website:

Please try again in a few minutes.

If you’re the owner of this website:

Check your DNS Settings. A 523 error means that Cloudflare could not reach your host web server. The most common cause is that your DNS settings are incorrect. Please contact your hosting provider to confirm your origin IP and then make sure the correct IP is listed for your A record in your Cloudflare DNS Settings page.

my A record just has the name of my subdomain and not the whole domain and is pointing to my actual static IP address.
