Hostname registration with bind9

  • Hi,

    On my LAN I use a linux machine with : bind9 for DNS service and DHCPD for DHCP service.
    When a PC is connected to LAN, DHCPD give an IP address to the PC and register the PC hostanme into bind9. PC's can't register directly into the bind9 (denied).

    A pfSense is connected on my LAN :

           Linux (dhcp/dns)
    ------------------ LAN
      | (DHCP)
      --------------- Subnet
          |       |
         PC1   PC2

    The hostname of PC1,PC2, PCx, etc. is register in pfSense, but not known on my LAN.

    How can I register the hostnames in an external DNS server (bind9 on my LAN) ? DNS Forwarder is enable.
    thank you

  • Did you ever get this working? I want to do the same thing, but as far as I can tell it's not possible.
