Google broke the SafeSearch feature for our organization when they directed all traffic to https. Google has the following fix for this...
"To disable SSL search for your network, configure the DNS entry for www.google.com
to be a CNAME for nosslsearch.google.com."
So on our DNS server, I created a zone called google.com and put in a CNAME for www. Now www.google.com
points to nosslsearch.google.com and that part works perfectly! The bad thing is, all other sub domains of google no longer work (like mail.google.com, maps.google.com, etc.).
I think this happens because we have a forward lookup zone for google.com, but only www.google.com
is in this zone. How can I add a CNAME on a Windows DNS server for www.google.com
without affecting any other sub domains of google?
I know how to create forward lookup zones and CNAMEs, but I'm not a DNS experts. I need help from someone who is an experts. Please, no links! Thanks in advance!
