Pfsense local dns server?
Please forgive my terminology, I only have basic understanding in this area and am trying to learn.
Does pfsense have a dns server for local host names? Or just a cache server for WAN addresses?
When I try to ping or do a nslookup for a local machine, I receive error domain not exist. Even when attempting to run a lookup of the host name of the machine I am on, it fails.
Edit: I am stumped even more so now. I have 3 hosts, my pfsense system which I will label Host1, my desktop which I will label Host2, and my server which I will label Host3
From Host2 I can run these commands
this resolves to an IPv4 address and pings are successful
This will display the ipv4 address of my pfsense system
I receive the error Ping request could not find host Host3. Please check the name and try again.
*** Host1.domain.com can't find Host3: Non-existent domain
Now from Host3 I can do the same as above with same results, however when I ping Host2 it will resolve to an IPv6 address and will be successful.
Found my answer hidden in the DNS forwarder settings to register local systems in DNS.
