dns resolver not resolving dns names
since I updated my pfsense box to 2.4.4 my dns doesn't work
on my home page my WAN is up under "interfaces" but under "gateways" my WAN_PPPOE is offline
when I go to "diagnostics>ping" I can ping 22.214.171.124 but can't resolve Google.co.uk
im using dns resolver and I have flicked it to dns forwarder and back again but still no joy, also tried a reboot
it may be my ISP so going to call them tomorrow to check if there having dns issues in my area

found out it's my pfsense box as I have luckily a wireless router and it works with my modem so have to re install pfsense on my box again
re-installed pfsense on my APU box with 2.4.4 and all works but when i changed the dns resolver config, it crashed out on me again so i def think its with the new version of pfsense and dns
Its not pfsense 2.4.4 if it was there board would be flooded with problems.. Resolver is working just fine.. How about you test something vs saying it doesn't work.
So when you use the diag dns lookup what do you get? What does the resolver log say? If pfsense sends a query and you get no answer that is not on pfsense.
but when i changed the dns resolver config, it crashed out
Changed it to WHAT?? You said it worked... What was the crash?
If you received an error message, please post the full and exact contents of the error message or log entry in question.
Do you see any arpresolve error messages in your logs? What is the MTU of your WAN interface?
sorry been busy at work and the only time i can look at this is when i get back home late evening.
i dont think its a dns resolve issue as i did another re-install of pfsense on my APU board (2.4.4) and i installed the openvpn client exporter and the whole pfsense box was acting really slow and crashed out on me yet again
it seems like after a fresh re-install of 2.4.4 its all ok and running smoothly but after i install a package or like before with dns adding a custom commnd to it the whole machine acts really slow and crashes all the time
it maybe hardware related
sorry i dont know what the error is yet but if i have time i will do some more homework and get back to you
pfSense DNS Resolver
Similarly, if you are using pfSense’s internal DNS resolver service, you’ll want to adjust that configuration. In the pfSense web UI, go to Services > DNS Resolver, click Display Custom Options, and enter the following the the text box:
but it wasnt just this that pfsense crashed on it crashed while i was installing openvpn client exporter so i really dont know why it kept on crashing
in the end i installed OPNsense and added the custom dns config and also set up openvpn server and it all works perfect now
for the time being im going to use OPNsense but it is far less superior than pfsense
