Router is constantly asking about domain www.mikrotik.com

Fri Mar 03, 2017 6:03 am

Please help me to explore why Mikrotik router is constntly asking DNS about www.mikrotik.com domain ?

From DNS logs I see that this traffic is generating by router constantly:
MT-DNS: local query: #84709 www.mikrotik.com. A 
How to stop this proces ?

Do you use Dude for monitoring? Its default DNS probe also asks for www.mikrotik.com.

Yes I'm using DUDE.

I wondering why I need this DUDE DNS ?
I have changed Dude configuration

Dude -> Probes -> DNS and change it from http://www.mikrotik.com to my local DNS on mikrotik router ip.

Is this right ?
Maybe should I delete this record ?

DNS probe checks if DNS resolver works, so it tries to resolve some hostname. I don't see any harm in using www.mikrotik.com, but if you don't like it for any reason, change it to something else. Or get rid of that probe completely, if you don't want to monitor DNS resolvers.
