The branch office and head office is connected via VPN. Please see single line diagram below:

Client -->RUT950-->Internet (VPN)-->H.O Gateway --> DNS servers

Note: In the RUTOS firmware, we can easily do this by utilizing the feature below. We simply put the DNS servers ( & to the "DNS forwardings" field and it works very fine. (please visit

You can pass DNS server IP addresses to hosts on a network by adding options to your DHCP settings. 

Navigate to Network -> LAN section. Under DHCP server section, select Advanced Settings tab. There you need to set 6, in DHCP options.

6 stands for DNS server.

Best regards,
