    Default DHCP/DNS Server

    Can Untangle be used as the following:
    1. DHCP Server
    2. DNS Server
    3. VPN

    I would like consolidate individual hardware into one box that can do everything. I am using the Homepro version to do content filtering (which is great), but would like to do much more with Untangle if possible.
    Thanks, David

    Yes. DNS is under Config -> network DHCP is per Interface in Config -> network. Untangle has Ipsec and OpenVPn for VPN. The soon to be release v16.0 also has WireGuard VPN.

    Not only does Untangle fill all three objectives, but with the HomePro license and v16 (coming soon), it can not only do VPN... but it can do it with FOUR protocols. OpenVPN, IPSec, L2TP, and with v16 Wireguard.

    And yes all four can run at the same time, nothing stopping you.

    And, for DNS/DHCP if you want the 'engine service manual' with exploded view version,

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

    Untangle NGFW runs dnsmasq under the hood.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am happy that Homepro can fit the bill. Now I can combine all the services I needed into one (1) nice package.

    Thanks again

    Hello,
    I thought untangle would allow the creation of a dhcp server that would I can use an include/exclude range. Some devices are static while others are DHCP. Maybe I am missing something.
    I was looking for a way to remove my UBNT Edge Router which handles all of the IP addressing at this time.
    Thanks, David

    No Untangle doesn't support excludes. For that matter I don't think DNSMasq does either.

    Is there a reason you don't have your dynamic address block contiguous?

    It appears that dnsmasq is capable of this
    Code:
     It is always allowed to have more than one --dhcp-range in a single subnet.
    however, I have no experience with it. It can be done using Custom dnsmasq options in NGFW, but you would have to understand it and be prepared to support yourself.

    I think a quick work-around is to simply make static assignments to the devices (by MAC address) in NGFW (#config/network/dhcp-server) even if they are not using DHCP. As you add each address, it will be reserved and no longer available for use in the pool.
