DNScache: allow-remote-requests Help??

by freebird » Mon Sep 12, 2005 7:37 pm

Hi,

I have read the manual and used the search function but found no real help.
What does the "allow-remote-requests" on/off switch mean?

Is a remote-request a dns request coming in from WAN port?
Is a remote-request a dns request coming in from LAN port with destination dns server in the internet (provider dns server) ??

I have set-up a 2.9.1 router (as hotspot gateway) and see absolutly no
difference.
Clients use MT router as DNS server, Router caches all requests. No difference if "allow-remote-requests" is on or off.

Where ist the difference? What does this function mean?
Thanks in advance.

there is not way router may decide which port is LAN and which - WAN, and which side is internet. "remote requests" just means remote (a opposed to the local within the router itself) requests, i.e., any DNS requests coming from any network interface to the router's IP address.
