Best practice for setting up DNS on Sonicwall
Posted on 2014-11-09
We have a few scenarios where I need to understand what the best practices should be for DNS at the firewall level.
Scenario 1: Windows server environments where SonicWALL doesn't handle DHCP or DNS, but rather Windows Server does. What should the DNS settings point to: a) the Windows DNS servers or b) Public DNS servers (ISP, etc.).
Scenario 2: Windows server doesn't exist or at least is not handling DHCP/DNS in the environment and SonicWALL is handling both DHCP or DNS. I'd assume DNS should be point to Public DNS servers (ISP, etc.).
