how to integrate WG DHCP with DNS
I have a new installation with a local subnet from a WG-T20 FW. I DHCP all of my local devices to the FW.
At the FW I listed two external DNS systems; (220.127.116.11, and 18.104.22.168).
So I can ping all local systems by name, but cannot resolve them using DNS. That means other tools that use names (Web browsers, …) cannot resolve anything by name. and of course nslookup fails (no local server).
It seems that the WG-FW does DHCP, but not any DNS.
It was explained to me that the local ping name resolution (from a windows system) was using a broadcast, not DNS.
The WG documentation says:
"Your Firebox includes DNS servers for DNS forwarding. You cannot configure the Firebox itself to function as a DNS server. Instead, you configure the Firebox to forward requests to the DNS... servers that you specify."
I do have two candidates for a local DNS server; a (Synology) NAS, and a small Linux server.
But also they describe:
"WatchGuard Fireboxes currently do not have the ability to publish their DHCP lease information to third-party servers.
"Our team is already working on this enhancement, "FBX-13554 Ability for firewall providing DHCP service to publish DNS record updates to a windows DNS server." We do not have any ETA or if it will be ready any time soon."
But from this, is it possible to have the WG do DHCP (as it does now), and also somehow sync with a local DNS server so I can access local systems by name?
