Other modules / Re: Disable Root DNS lookups
« on: July 04, 2020, 04:06:13 pm »
Yep, I see this is an old post.

Why would customers want to do this? 

They use pfBlockerNG-devel for DNS filtering.  So it is OK if the Zental server does the caching of DNS queries for the LAN, and it should get ALL data from the resolver.  If we have 2 resolvers we are smart.  One resolver we are not so smart.  We should have a checkbox to disable using the root servers.  Also the root server file is out of date on Devel 6.2.0.

Other modules / DHCP reservations that make sense
« on: May 13, 2020, 02:45:15 am »
Hi All,

Whoever the poor soul that decided to do DHCP reservations via network objects must be related to Satan and love pain.  I suggest you have a developer fix this and just cheat, use the method and interface that pfSense uses:

Those blue and white + objects at the right of the item allow you to turn that into a static IP adress.

See how simple it can Be?


LOL, I would take just a simple button to turn a DHCP lease into a reservation or be able to see the reservations in the DHCP scope along with the dynamic addresses.  The developers at Zentyal could even cheat and look to see how the developers at pfSense do it and I would be fine with that.  The current process is like slamming you hand in the door each time you want to make a DHCP reservation.
