Local DNS resolution



  • DNS resolution on my pfSense 1.2-RELEASE install works for just about everything except for local LAN devices with static IP addresses.  I've tried adding A records in TinyDNS but my PCs on the LAN still cannot resolve to them.  I should point out that I also have DNS forwarder enabled and configured.  I don't know if this is conflicting with TinyDNS or should stay enabled also.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!



  • Turn off tinyDNS – you don't need it's functionality just for local name resolution. In the DNS forwarded select "Register DHCP leases in DNS forwarder" and "Register DHCP static mappings in DNS forwarder," then set your DHCP server to assign your routers IP for a dns server.
