Enable DNS Relay for Ease of Client Configuration
Next, you should enable the DNS relay feature so clients can be configured with the router's IP for their DNS server setting, and then the router will forward the DNS queries to the real server.
By default, DHCP gives the clients the real DNS server addresses, and queries are sent directly. However, if you manually configure a static IP, you must input the DNS information yourself.
Remembering the router's IP is usually much easier than remembering the DNS address provided by your ISP.
Here's how to enable this feature using WinBox:
- Click IP > DNS, and then press the Settings button.
- Double-check that you've entered your ISP's DNS server addresses into the Primary and Secondary fields.
- Check the Allow Remote Requests option to enable DNS relay.
- Click OK.
