Configuring DNS proxy through the web UI of the USG6000 series

The USG6000 series can serve as the DNS proxy to forward DNS request and reply packets between the DNS client and DNS server. Specify the DNS server address through the web UI so that the device can serve as the DNS proxy to send domain name resolution requests to the DNS server.
1. Choose Network > DNS > DNS.
2. Click Add in DNS Server List.
3. Set the IP address of the DNS server.
If you do not select the external network interface, the configured DNS server address is the global address. Enter the IPv4 or IPv6 address of the DNS server in the DNS Server Address text box. Click OK.
If you select a specific external network interface, the configured DNS server address is the address bound with the interface and applies only to this interface.
If the operation succeeds, the new configuration whose Obtaining Mode is Manual is displayed in DNS Server List.
Repeat the preceding operations to add the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of multiple DNS servers.
4. Optional: In Configure DNS Query Packets's Source Address, set the Source Interface or Source Address.
