Hello. Is it possible to get resolved ip addresses to dns name with default "DNS" server (RUTXR1) via forwarding to external DNS?

in /etc/config/dhcp file, under section "config dnsmasq" I have following string:

list server '/'

I did try to add reverse record, what in GUI looks like: / 

to get ptr records for subnet, but GUI does not allow it (FAILED TO EDIT CONFIGURATION)

So, is it possible at all? What is my mistake?

Might be another WebUI limitation.

I would like you to try the following:

Login via SSH, execute the following command:

  • vi /etc/config/dhcp

Press letter i to enable editing and add the following line under dnsmasq configuration:

  • list server '/'

In addition, set boguspriv option to 0:

  • option boguspriv '0'

Once done press Esc, then enter :wq and press Enter.

Lastly, execute the following command:

  • etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart

See if that helps.

Best regards,

Thank you. Yes, settings via config file are working. Another GUI issue.

Please note, that this "walkaround" basically blocks this page in GUI from any following changes.

This limitation must be fixed.

This is indeed the result of any changes made via CLI, which are not accepted by the WebUI.

I have registered a ticked for the developers.

Apologies for the inconveniences.

It seems, what there is another problem. I removed conflicted records from config file, restart service.

In the GUI, I have added second interface for DNS server to listen on. This is result in config file:

    option interface 'br_Guest lan'

But in GUI after successfully executing Save and Apply, I still see only "lan".
