Wpad setup problem



  • In pursue to setup https web filtering  using wpad,  I am configuring the DNS resolver with
    hostname=wpad
    domain=localdomain.local
    ip=192.168.1.1

    my pfsense local ip address is 192.168.1.1 and I am using http protocol on my general setup.

    When I nslookup wpad 127.0.0.1 from my pfsense box, I get:

    Server:        127.0.0.1
    Address:        127.0.0.1#53

    Name:  wpad.localdomain.local
    Address: 192.168.1.1

    When I nslookup wpad 192.168.1.1 from my pfsense box, I get:

    Server:        192.168.1.1
    Address:      192.168.1.1#53

    ** server can't find wpad: NXDOMAIN

    But when I nslookup wpad 192.168.1.1 from my lan compputer, I get:

    Server:  pfSense.localdomain.local
    Address:  192.168.1.1

    *** pfSense.localdomain.local can't find wpad: Non-existent domain

    But when I nslookup wpad.localdomain.local 192.168.1.1 from my lan compputer, I get:

    Server:  pfSense.localdomain.local
    Address:  192.168.1.1

    Name:    wpad.localdomain.local
    Address:  192.168.1.1

    What do I miss here ?



  • What do I miss here ?

    Is your client a member of localdomain.local?  Is localdomain.local the default domain when doing lookups?  Your DNS only responds to lookup requests for wpad.localdomain.local not wpad by itself, so your client would have to know to add the domain.



  • yes. the clients dns and gateway are on 192.168.1.1



  • That's not what I asked.
