Manual DNS on DHCP WAN Interface?



  • Hi there,
    I'm still using monowall and considering switching to pfsense.
    I need particulary 2 things and would like to understand, if that's possible:

    1. the WAN interface goes to a cable modem which is the DHCP server. So it gives my firewall it's DNS servers. I'd like to manually overwrite those and use the DNSs of my choice. monowall can't do that. Can pfsense?

    2. never mind - just saw there are already threads covering DNS over TLS :-)

    Thx,
    reach



  • Hi,

    Better yet : instead of having some foreign source handling your DNS resolutions, you can decide to do nothing. In that case the default resolver get used, which includes DNSSEC if present.
