Looking at this guide https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/962655-steam-caching-tutorial/ Could this be added to pfsense? Because I could not get squid to cache steam.
Buy a Raspberry Pi or something that runs Ubuntu and install it on that.
The problem is in the guide you have to set your DNS to that of the server running the cache. I want the router to be the DNS server.

A firewall is not a docker/VM host for multiple unrelated services. So follow the advice from @NogBadTheBad.
Will this work if you set the DNS to pfsense?
No, it will not.
So I’m trying to setup PFsense and a docker Steam and Windows caching server on two separate machines.
Currently I have my network configured as such
Eth0: WAN access
Eth1: LAN connection to Docker server
Eth2: LAN to network switch for entire Local Network
Wifi0: wireless access point.
Eth1,2, and wifi0 are bridged and have internet access through eth0’s WAN connection.
The issue I’m having is that PFSense disregards much DNS server settings and doesn’t send any traffic to the docket unit (all traffic should be going to the docket unit for DNS services). If I manually configure the DNS on each client computer to use the docket machine, everything works as it should, but the whole point of running PFSense (in my mind) was to prevent having to manually configure each client PC.
I haven’t been able to find any instances of anyone doing something similar on google or this forum.
@hcurren Why not configure the IP of the docker machine as DNS server for the DHCP pool?
