Unable to resolve DNS
Hi All - please forgive quite a noob at this. I am in remote Kenya and we have a very limited internet connection. I have setup pfsense, new install and can't seem to resolve DNS. Would like DNS Resolver to work so that I can use pfBlocker to cut down on traffic.
I have 2 SIM routers (7mbit/s each max) going into a TP-Link Load balancer and from their they go into the pfsense firewall. I've opened up the WAN and LAN any, any, any. Using DNS Resolver - All - All
When I nslookup from a laptop on the LAN I get dns request time out.
Only way to get online is for me to hardcode my DNS to 126.96.36.199
Where am I going wrong?
@junebuhg The pfsense community wants to help. But it is hard to help you without being able to see the full picture.
Please show screenshots of the following:
- LAN firewall rules
- WAN firewall rules
- Any NAT outbound rules
- Any NAT port forward rules
- DNS resolver settings page
- DNS servers on the General Setup page
- LAN interface settings page
- WAN interface settings page
- If using DHCP, the DHCP settings page for LAN
What is the IP address and netmask the WAN interface is on?
