If you are not familiar with the term, then let us take one step at a time. A DNS or the Domain Name System is a system that translates the internet address of a domain name into its web address or numeric string. This system translates the domain name that has been entered into the system and converts it into an IP address. The system uses the logical structure of domains in a hierarchical fashion starting from the top-level domain to the sub-domain.
There are many reasons that one may need to use dns servers to resolve the domain name resolution issues on their network. The first step would be to understand how the system works. DNS servers serve the purpose of pointing a domain name towards another server that stores the information about the particular domain. You can also configure the DNS proxy settings so that it plays the role of a search engine. However, you cannot configure it to serve as a reverse search engine.
The main purpose of the DNS system is to allow for a website that utilizes zone transfers to use alternate IP addresses for its operational purposes. An example would be you wanted to allow a visitor to enter an alternate IP addresses from his current location. This can easily be configured using the proxy settings. You will be provided with a list of relevant zones to use in the forwarding process.
After you have created a zone transfer group and activated the forwarding process, you will need to configure a Virtual Private Database. You can create the VPD by following the steps given below: On the Administration panel, click on Virtual Private Database. Then, under the resource section, click on New and then type in proxy in the Select Name field. Type a descriptive name for the new Virtual Private Database and then hit Save.
After you have configured the VPD, you will need to associate the proxy with the IP address of your choice. You will do this by creating an ingress interface. The ingress interface enables your browser to establish a connection to the dns server and return the requested information to the client. You will need to create the inbound interface by clicking on the link “Internet Connection Setup” found at the bottom of the browser. Type in the IP address and then click on OK.
Now that you have configured the proxy with the IP address of your choice, you can configure it to serve a domain name’s query. The proxy action should be set in the web browser control panel. To do this, click the padlock icon and then click the “OK” button. In the results list, you will see a box asking you to select a service type. Choose “socks-type.”
You will now configure the proxy to accept and make DNS requests as a Virtual Private Database. To do this, you will need to go to the Control Panel > Sites and Services. Double-click on the “Certificates” icon and then click on the option “Manage DNS Requests.” Once you have done so, you will see a screen asking you to enter the IP address of the computer from which you will be connecting to the server.
Once you have done all these, you should then modify your network settings. You will see a row where you should enter the IP address of the computer from which you will be connecting to the server. Then, click on the padlock icon to lock the application in its current state. Modify the setting named “Network Rules” by selecting” dhclient-static”, which is the default value for the DNS server.
