DNS Resolver Issues



  • Can't get this domain to work from my PC (works fine on the phone no wifi on)

    Piholes dns is 10.0.0.1 which is pfsense.

    Any ideas?

    nslookup x3rl.com
    Server:  Pihole
    Address:  10.0.0.222
    
    *** Pihole can't find x3rl.com: Server failed
    

    DNS Resolver Infrastructure Cache Speed on pfsense

    156.154.132.200	x3rl.com.	894	26	14	82	82	0	0	0
    2610:a1:1025::200	x3rl.com.	894	0	94	376	376	0	0	0
    156.154.133.200	x3rl.com.	894	16	20	96	96	0	0	0
    2610:a1:1024::200	x3rl.com.	894	0	94	376	376	0	0	0
    


  • Without pihole

    nslookup x3rl.com
    Server:  pfSense.localdomain
    Address:  10.0.0.1
    
    *** pfSense.localdomain can't find x3rl.com: Server failed
    


  • Hi,

    Do a more general DNS check for that domain. Or even the www subdomain.

    Use a tool like https://www.zonemaster.net/domain_check - and that domain, and one that you it exists - liek your own web site.

    Its close to non-existent. Or the domain name maintainer has some DNS issues. Maybe he forget to renew the domain rent ?

    So yes, pihole and pfSense can't make something from nothing ;)
