I am using MAX BR1 as my network gateway/ firewall /local dns/ etc. using only the LTE cellular as my only internet source. All working fine. But we have a filtered DNS service which I have been pointing to as the DNS server in the cellular section of the WAN settings. However, there are operation situations (power outages combined with changing IP from our cellular provider) where using a filtered DNS causes us problems with dropping off Incontrol. We really need to specify a solid public provider for uninterrupted stable traffic between our device and Incontrol.
So, I need to use e.g 220.127.116.11 for my cellular DNS. But when I go to configure the forwarder for my local DNS, I need to be able to put in our DNS filter’s servers, but I can’t. My only option to select the cellular connection’s DNS. Why is that? Why can’t I specify a different DNS option here?
If I didn’t need a local DNS server, I could put the filter resolvers directly into DHCP on my networks. That works fine and my traffic gets filtered. But that leaves me no local DNS.
