Add support for an included dns recursor
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I'm using vyos at work and had to include a dns recursor (pdns-recursor) to match our needs. I would like to be able to use the streamline vyos code. Would it be possible to include a dns recursor into vyos ? I can eventually contribute with some developpment if needed.

Please correct me if I‘m wrong but is the integrated dnsmasq insufficient for your needs?

Please see

set service dns forward

dnsmasq is good, but it's still need servers forward to
so i was thinking about powerdns recursor that can be used directly or via forwarder

"unbound" is also another good recursor.

Packages are already available in debian, pfsense, RedHat, CentOS, etc.
