Redirecting hard coded DNS requests to Pi Hole running on Firewalla (DHCP mode)

    Hi,

     

    Iptables may be flushed by monitoring processes on Firewalla. Therefore we do not recommend to edit rules in iptables.

    However, you can try setting the DNS name servers for the overlay network in Firewalla. Go to "Settings" -> "Advanced" -> "Network Settings" -> "Edit Overlay Network" and change the DNS server to 192.168.253.2.

    Since Firewalla will redirect all DNS traffic to its own dnsmasq which is running on port 8853, the above settings tells the dnsmasq to use Pi-Hole as upstream DNS server.

     

    Thanks

    Do I have to enable any specific feature for Firewalla to redirect all DNS traffic to its own dnsmasq?
