DNS Forwarder Issue

  • Hi,

    I've got the following problem with Domain Dns forwarder.

    I have 2 pfsense Boxes connected to each other via ipsec, and that is working fine.

    network A <-> Pfsense 2.0 (A) <–- Internet (Ipsec) ---> Pfsense 2.0 (B) <-> network B (dns server B)

    On the Pfsense A I've defined a domain which exists on Dns server B.

    whenever I do a network lookup for a entry defined in Domain dns forwarder from any computer on network A it fails and that computer just cant look up the entry it's looking for.

    However the computers in network A and the pfsense 2.0 box can access the dns server B directly.

    When I do a ping on Pfsense A it doesn't seem capable of lookup up the name either.

    When I configure a computer on network A to use directly dns server B there is no problem.

    It seems to me that Dns Forwarder can't / won't use the ip sec routes to reach the dns server on network b.

    The routing table seems correct, and network b is showing up correctly.

    Any help is welcome.

  • Thanks

    That solved the problem
