What is the DNS forwarder?

What is the DNS forwarder?


DNS servers often must communicate with DNS servers outside of the local network. A forwarder is an entry that is used when a DNS server receives DNS queries that it cannot resolve locally. It then forwards those requests to external DNS servers for resolution.

DNS forwarding is the process by which particular sets of DNS queries are handled by a designated server, rather than being handled by the initial server contacted by the client. Usually, all DNS servers that handle address resolution within the network are configured to forward requests for addresses that are outside the network to a dedicated forwarder.

hii

You can  configure your server to forward queries according to specific domain names using conditional forwarders. A DNS server on a network is designated as a forwarder when the other DNS servers in the network are configured to forward the queries that they cannot resolve locally to that DNS server.

hi,

A forwarder is a Domain Name System (DNS) server on a network that forwards DNS queries for external DNS names to DNS servers outside that network. You can also forward queries according to specific domain names using conditional forwarders.

Thanks

The DNS forwarder  is a powerful tool that allows fine-grained control over the DNS service provided to clients on a network. The DNS Forwarder refers to the dnsmasq daemon. For Unbound, see Unbound DNS Resolver.
The DNS forwarder will answer DNS requests from clients, and in turn attempt to resolve queries using all currently available configured DNS servers. This way, it is not necessary to configure public DNS servers directly on client systems.
