- Force router to use preferred DNS server for router services
- Please refer to: Use preferred DNS server address on Vigor Router
This will force the router to use preferred DNS configured in LAN profile when the router’s services try to make DNS queries to lookup IP addresses.
- Force client to use preferred DNS server for all DNS queries
- Please refer to: Forward All DNS Queries to a Private DNS Server
We can force the router to forward all DNS queries to the preferred DNS server by using wildcard option in DNS forwarding.
