Should DNS for dual internet connections be set to 'None' gateway?



  • Hello,

    I see that manually adding a monitor IP for a gateway, or specifying a DNS gateway in General Setup, creates static routes for this traffic.

    If you have two internet connections, should the 'Use gateway' for your DNS servers be set to 'None', so that the DNS requests can get through even if an interface goes down?

    From:

    System –> General Setup

    In addition, optionally select the gateway for each DNS server. When using multiple WAN connections there should be at least one unique DNS server per gateway.
