    Default Untangle as DNS Server

    Hi all,

    This might be a dumb question, but can Untangle serve as a DNS Server? In pfSense you can use Unbound for this purpose, but wasn’t sure if Untangle has similar functionality. Thanks.

    If you mean a dns server for your local network, yes.

    If you mean a public DNS server, no its not really designed for that. You can make it work I'm sure, but you'd likely be using dnsmasq custom options to do so.

    Not necessarily public for folks outside of my network to use; just something to use instead of using Google, Cloudflare, etc. for DNS requests.

    Untangle's DNS server must forward requests to another server, DNSMasq doesn't support utilization of root hints for direct resolution.
