Hi, can you explain\confirm to me the use\difference of resolve file and the host file in DNS configuration (RUTX12)

I think "Additional servers file" in "advanced Settings" is list of forwarding DNS servers and line example would be

  "server=8.8.8.8"   is that correct?

is the resolve file to reverse dns lookup e.g. 1.2.3.4=myhost.mydomin.com

and is host file forward e.g. myhost.mydomain.com=1.2.3.4

thanks and regards

Fergus

Hello,

Additional servers file - uploads an additional DNS servers file. This file may contain lines like 'server=/domain/1.2.3.4' or 'server=1.2.3.4' for domain-specific or full upstream DNS servers.

You may be interested in DNS> General settings> DNS forwarding section. Here you can specify /domain/DNS server for specific list of DNS servers to forward requests to.

Regards.
