How to set default DNS IP for PPTP Server

Hi, evryone


I use FG 6.0 and I setup a pptp server alreday, and client can connect without problem.

I want to set a default DNS IP for pptp Server, so it can push to all client and use it?

How can I do? Please give me some help!


Thanks a lot!

not sure if that will work for pptp tunnels. I does work for IPSec tunnels in mode config:


  set domain <domain>

  set ipv4-dns-server1 <ip>

  set dns-mode manual


will make the tunnel to send all queries relating <domain> to ipv4-dns-server1.

All other request will go to the client's system dns.
