We have a RV082 that we're using soley for routing and no other services (firewall is disabled). For some reason you can query a DNS server on it even though we have never set a DNS server address for it to use. I'm guessing that it has some hard-coded DNS system to use with the System Management > Daignostic > DNS Name Lookup utility. Because you can query this DNS service from outside the router, this actually gets flagged by our security scanners as a DNS vulnerability. Is there no way to disable this DNS server?
Hi It, here is an excerpt from the product documentation. Are you using the DHCP from the router? Did you specify any DNS value on the router? It seems by default the router acts as a DNS proxy (using your WAN setting to feed DNS to the LAN client). Keeping the value at 0.0.0.0 makes the router service as a DNS proxy.
DNS (used for DHCP Server only)
Optionally, enter the IP address of a
. You also can enter a secondary
DNS server. Specifying a DNS server can provide quicker access than using a
DNS server that is dynamically assigned through the WAN settings. You can keep
the default setting of 0.0.0.0 to use a dynamically assigned DNS server.
