Tertiary DNS



  • Is the option to put in a Tertiary DNS ever going to be allowed for when we Static the IP?



  • Download your config.xml via the webgui (diagnostics>backup/restore). Edit the xml file and add a third entry where the DNS-Servers are listed:

    <pfsense><version>2.3</version>
    <lastchange><theme>metallic</theme>
    <system><optimization>normal</optimization>
    <hostname>pfsense</hostname>
    <domain>local</domain>
    <username>admin</username>
    <password>$1$dSJImFph$GvZ7.1UbuWu.Yb8etC0re.</password>
    <timezone>Europe/Berlin</timezone>
    <time-update-interval>300</time-update-interval>
    <timeservers>pool.ntp.org</timeservers>
    <webgui><protocol>http</protocol>
    <certificate><private-key></private-key></certificate></webgui>
    <disablenatreflection>yes</disablenatreflection>
    <enablesshd>yes</enablesshd>

    <maximumstates><dnsserver>x.x.x.x</dnsserver>
    <dnsserver>y.y.y.y</dnsserver>
    <dnsserver>y.y.y.y</dnsserver>
    <enableserial></enableserial></maximumstates></system>
            …..</lastchange></pfsense>

    Then reupload it. I think that should work.



  • Well under Status -> Interface it only shows the primary and secondary.
    So I downloaded the config again and they are stil there, so when my ISP loose there main DNS server I'll see if this works :)
    Will try to think of another test before then though ;)
