Disabling connection-specific DNS suffix [SOLVED]



  • How the heck do you disable the DNS suffix on pfSense 1.2.2 embedded? I just can't figure it out! >:(
    The DHCP server automatically serves it to all clients, and it breaks DNS on my subnet.

    This is how my /etc/resolv.conf looks like on a linux client that requests a lease from the router:

    domain mydomain.com
    search mydomain.com

    nameserver 192.168.1.1

    Those lines in bold shouldn't be there.
    Removing them by hand fixes the DNS issue.
    See previous thread.



  • This just a guess but try removing the Domain setting in  System: General Setup.



  • It does not work. the domain name is mandatory.

    The following input errors were detected:
        * The field 'Domain' is required.



    1. Why not use domain.local or somesuch?
    2. Reflection is a cheap hack for the lazy, there are better ways of going about it.

    Hey, that seems to have worked! Thanks.
    Nat reflection is working properly. I am using it because I'm lazy the domain has a wildcard forward rule at my ISP's DNS server. Trying to access any subdomain from my LAN doesn't quite work.



  • @Alween:

    the domain has a wildcard forward rule at my ISP's DNS server.

    Oh, that explains why you were getting the weird behavior described in the previous thread.



  • Funny thing is this has never happened on my linksys WRT54GL with dd-wrt that I was using prior installing pfSense/Alix.
    Anyway, [SOLVED].
