DNS Services on Smoothwall

::::::DNS Services:::::::
Services » DNS » Static DNS (will create entries on the host file)
(overrides public DNS lookups on the UTM system)
(can be useful when public DNS lookups points to an IP address either not avaiable from internal network locations or a host or domainname which will normally resolve to a public IP address needs to be resolved by the UTM system)

Services » DNS » DNS proxy (enables access to the DNS proxy on the enabled internal interface)
(DNS proxy is used, using the external DNS server set in the external connectivity profile, so resolving internal hostnames is normally not possible when using the DNS proxy)
(in general the internal clinets should be using the internal DNS, whereas the internal DNS should be using the DNS proxy as a forwarder to the external DNS)

Services » DNS » Dynamic DNS
