Resolve domain to internal IP address
I am new to pfSense, so forgive the noob question...
I purchased a domain that I want to resolve differently when inside the LAN. I would like to resolve it to pfSense's IP.
So (just an example)...
ouside world: mydomain.com -> 184.108.40.206
inside network: mydomain.com -> 192.168.1.1
I have tried adding this to domain overrides in the DNS resolve but have had no luck.
Is something even possible to do in pfSense?

Yes, that's how I have it set up. I use an external DNS server, with my real world addresses and configure the pfSense DNS to provide the local network address. Works fine.
Domain override would be when you want to ask a specific nameserver to resolve something fro you like host.domain.com or other.domain.com, you would create a domain override for domain.com pointing to some name server IP address that will resolve x.domain.com for you.
If you want mydomain.com to return 192.168.1.1
Then you would create a HOST override for domain.com where host would be domain and domain would be com
This accomplished exactly what I was after... I didn't event think about putting in a top-level domain.
Thanks for the help!
