Feature request: DNS per group permission

Post by sliddjur » Fri Nov 26, 2021 9:37 am

Hello, we're an MSP that use OpenVPN AS.

We crate group per customer. But I would like to push seperate DNS servers to each customer.

Can we please get an option to be able to push DNS per group?

Johan can answer that better than I can, but I can suggest possible workarounds.

If you have group IP addresses in your AS, you can use named(8)'s view feature to provide possibly different query replies to different networks. You would point all clients at the same nameserver, but change how the nameserver replies. It depends what your high-level goal is.

Split DNS in named

Thanks, we already use named with views. That is what we want to avoid, because it just adds another layer to manage.
