Watchguard DNS configuration

article #929, updated 517 days ago

Finally, an answer to a question I have had for a very long time. The DNS configuration of a Watchguard under its Network Configuration should be Internet-public DNS, e.g., 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4 (Google) or OpenDNS or Comodo or Norton ConnectSafe et cetera. It is the trusted DHCP only, if in use, which should have local LAN DNS.

One problem this will cure very effectively, is failure of connectivity to the Watchguard-provided WebBlocker server.

Found the above information in very different words here:
