DNS Proxy with vwire

Question is it possible to create and use a dns proxy when in vwire mode. I would think that a vlan with an ip would need to be created in Interfaces- Vlan to facilitate this. Thought I would query to see if anyone had tried this. One issue that comes to mind is vwire layer 2, vlan with ip layer three probably will not work but I'm curiuos.

 

Thanks


Andy

Hi @AndyYerger

 

vwire is a bump in the wire, unlike layer2 you can't add a vlan with a numbered interface 'inside' the vwire

 

you can attach an additional dataplane interface to your local network and set it on a VR with the same default gateway as your clients (so it is able to route it's connections out through the vwire) and set a dns proxy service on it
