DNS Lookup werid error
« on: December 16, 2008, 11:26:04 am »
on pfsense DHCP -> for DNS servers i specified my "virtual lan" as the DNS server which is 10.0.0.1 ( i am using carp)

when I do an nslookup on a client it says

Server: unknown
ip address: 10.0.0.1

and then my results

if i change the dhcp dns to use the physical lan ip to 10.0.0.2 an nslookup will result with
Server: pf145.ansc.purdue.edu (my hostname of the firewall)
Ip Address: 10.0.0.2

results...


any way to get it to say the hostname of 10.0.0.1?

a small workaround was in the dns forwarder area i put 10.0.0.1 -> the hostname of my choice
