Note: In the Firewalla 1.52 app release, you can now add Custom DNS Entry Rules via the app instead of through the method established in this guide. Watch a video tutorial or read more about this feature in our 1.52 App Release Notes.
Before you get started with this guide:
- This is for Firewalla Gold/Purple only.
- This is for Router Mode only.
- This is a technical doc for Pros.
- This is not officially supported and is not guaranteed to work long term.
1. Create any file under ~/.firewalla/config/dnsmasq_local/
$ cat ~/.firewalla/config/dnsmasq_local/example
Option: the configuration will be applied globally. To override other upstream DNS server, use server-high instead of server
2. Restart Firewalla DNS Service
sudo systemctl stop firerouter_dns
sudo systemctl start firerouter_dns
This is exactly what I needed to make my Nginx Proxy Manager configuration work. I need to map the external subdomains internally as aliases to existing devices (I'm not going assign the external domain as the search/local domain).
My only comment is that, be aware that you can repeat the line without having to modify the 'address' key. This is not clear, since the example has a single line. For example:
Be aware that you forward all hosts to a single host (NPM) and then it will take care of forwarding to the right host. This explains the repeated IP address above.
Right now I'm running NPM outside of my Firewalla (one change at a time). But this is essential service and I plan to move it as a docker instance later.
Can someone help me with a suggestion?
I need DNS queries from a particular device on my LAN (known MAC and IP address) to be redirected to a specific DNS server.
How do I do this?
