Sonicwall SOHO3 not passing DNS properly
Posted on 2006-07-20
I just setup an old SOHO3 I had and for some reason it won't pass the DNS properly.
I have the LAN set to 188.8.131.52
My WAN IP is grabbed by DHCP using PPPOE from my DSL.
The DNS servers are getting set properly from my provider.
Under the DNS servers it has a note:
*To pass these DNS settings to computers on the LAN, you must enable the DHCP Server on the DHCP Setup page
So I setup the DHCP server and gave it a few addresses.
If I set my desktop to grab a lease using DHCP, all works well.
However if I manually set my desktop IP settings to:
DNS2: not set
It won't translate DNS properly. I can go to things directly using IP but not using domains. Do I need to set my DNS manually to the DNS provided from DSL? Shouldn't I be able to just set my DNS to the gateway and it will translate?
