    Default Need to create Cname record

    So I have this old copier that I need to add a smtp server address to, problem is that the smtp server address is too long!! the copier only allows 32 characters in this field. The solution is to create a CNAME record so I can use a shorter name. Can't find where to add cnames in untangle, please help.

    Thanks

    just create an "A record" for the name you want to the same IP.

    not sure if that will work.. the smtp address is from office365 and I think they use multiple ip addresses.

    http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/dnsmasq...smasq-man.html

    cname=foo.example.com,bar.example.com

    You can add this in you DNS & DHCP config.

    https://wiki.untangle.com/index.php/DNS_and_DHCP
    However read the following warnings in the UI and the docs. These are there for a reason.

    This is for advanced users. Misconfiguration of this field will result in improper functioning of the Untangle server.
    Warning: Invalid syntax will halt all DHCP & DNS services.
