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 10.0.0.0/8
      |
      |   10.0.0.254
    pfSense
      |    192.168.0.254 (DHCP)
      |
      --------------- Subnet 192.168.0.0/24
          |       |
         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.
