Question about alias



  • I am creating an alias type host using fqdn.  and I read on the instruction above it that says "FQDN hostnames are periodically re-resolved and updated."  So my questions are,

    1.  so the FQDN hostname is turned into IP addresses right? 
    2.  when are the FQDN hostnames resolved and updated and how many times a day ?

    Just a follow on my alias question.  So if I use an alias type host using FQDN hostname, so the firewall is using the resolved IP addresses of the FQDN hostname and not the FQDN hostname itself right ?

    By default they are updated every 5 minutes (300 seconds) using the filterdns daemon. This interval can be changed under System > Advanced on the Firewall/NAT tab.
