Question about tinydns



  • I need some information. I'm using tinydns on a system with 2 WAN on which are set static IP. But I want that tinydns could bind 2 WAN IP so that in case of failure to one of the lines I always have an authoritative DNS active. Can I do this?



  • Maybe I found a solution to my problem. I set a port forward for port 53 to 127.0.0.1 from both WAN WAN2 and everything seems to work.
    I would like a confirmation by others to understand if this is the best solution.








  • Depending on your hardware and network configuration it's possible that there might be a more robust solution, but if it's just a single pfsense box with the multi-WAN being the only difference from a typical configuration, then yes, that should be fine.

    You're right i've a single pfsense box for 2 wan, 1 lan and 1 DMZ plus another ethernet card connected to another pfsense box which serves only as a proxy server. Why I decided to use a second machine just for the proxy? Simple, is an old PC and in this way i can solve the problem of squid in multi wan configuration.  ;)
