We are looking for a way to forward All dns requests to internal DNS ip.
Either client changes its ip address to public dns addresses it should be forwarded to internal.
Can we do that ?
We don't want to write a deny rule for public Dns requests.
We don't want to enforce client's dns.
According to the Docs:
For all DNS queries that are directed to an interface IP address, the firewall supports the selective directing of queries to different DNS servers based on full or partial domain names. TCP or UDP DNS queries are sent through the configured interface. UDP queries fail over to TCP when a DNS query answer is too long for a single UDP packet.
If the domain name is not found in the DNS proxy cache, the domain name is searched for a match based on configuration of the entries in the specific DNS proxy object (on the interface on which the DNS query arrived) and forwarded to a name server based on the match results. If no match is found, the default name servers are used. Static entries and caching are also supported.
It would be interesting to try.
Hi, except from DNS-proxy another way to accomplish this is using U-turn NAT configuration
Source Zone: Trust-Zone
Dest Zone: Untrust-Zone
service: dns (53tcp +53udp)
Source : Your internal network
Dest: External Dns server IP (ie 220.127.116.11 google)
Source translate: dynamic-ip-port (PAT) of your internal firewall interface
Dest translate: Your internal DNS server IP
Also you need a permit security policy from Trust-Zone to Trust-Zone
The drawback that you need a NAT entry for every external dns server, but if you verify which ones is mostly used I think that 10 rules could match 90% of your dns external requests.
