[SOLVED] Another OpenDNS question

  • I need some extra eyes lookup over my setup  ::)

    I'm running 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1 (amd64) with the following setup

    System / General Setup

    DNS server settings:
        server1: WAN_DHCP
        server2: WAN_DHCP
        DNS Server Override: disabled
        Disable DNS Forwarder : enabled

    Services / DNS Resolver /General Settings

    Enable DNS Resolver : disabled

    Services / DNS Forwarder

    Enable DNS forwarder : enabled
        DHCP Registration : enabled
        Static DHCP : enabled
        Prefer DHCP : disabled
        DNS query forwarding : disabled
        Require domain : enabled
        Do not forward private reverse lookups : enabled
        interfaces LAN, localhost
    Services / DHCP Server /LAN

    DHCP Static Mappings for this Interface
        List of my local hosts

    Running on pfSense the Diagnostics / DNS Lookup
    external lookups work fine, but local lookups fail.

    On hosts, local lookups are fine, but nslookup's from pfsense bypass opendns

    What have I setup wrong?

    "but nslookup's from pfsense bypass opendns"

    Did you setup to pfsense to ask itself?  Ie the loopback address  Or did you check that to disable? Did you turn off dhcp dns override via dhcp?  That should be unchecked.

  • Thanks johnpoz.

    Turned out I had disabled the DNS Resolver and saved the setting, but did not apply the change.
    Wen you leave the page and apply other pages, this page is not applied. You need to apply each page, if it's changed.  :-[
    I also disabled the [b]Disable DNS Forwarder setting as you recommended.
    All seems to be working fine now.

    Thank you, appreciate your time and effort!
