Hostname registration with bind9
xhark last edited by
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.

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