PfDNS functionality is now in pfSense?

  • Hi there,

    am I right, that the functionality of pfDNS is now in pfSense 1.2.3 and pfSense 2.x?

    I.e., I could use the latest pfSense and didn't need to use pfDNS to have DHCP and DNS functionality?

    You can install the dns server package and have the same functionality, yes, but the design philosophy of pfDNS was to be used standalone as an appliance, not a firewall/router.

    You could always have the same functionality (moreso on 2.0 since it can run OK with a single NIC) it was just more of a prepackaged setup.
