PFSense DNSMasq and other VirtualBox machine



  • Hello,

    I'm using few VirtualBox machines i.e. Debian, FreeBSD, Windows etc.
    In VBox I'm using bridged adapter with random MAC.

    I always have a problem after running machine that I cannot lookup for this machine by DNS query asking pfSense dns.
    That means if I have machine 'virtual' and it got ip from pfSense I cannot ping it by hostname.

    Workaround is to restart dnsmasq service and then everything working correctly.

    Can somebody help me what's wrong?



  • Have you checked the DHCP registration box in the DNS Forwarder settings?
