Here is my scenario when a client wants to resolve a name on my local
CLIENT --> VPN --> SAMBA --> DNS
The client is set up like so:
DNS1 = ISP DNS1 (188.8.131.52)
DNS2 = ISP DNS2 (184.108.40.206)
WINS1 = my samba1 (10.10.1.5)
WINS2 = my samba2 (10.10.1.8)
This all _seemed_ to have worked 3 days ago for roughly 6 months but
stopped suddenly without me doing anything.
When the client requests a name on my local network like atlas
(10.10.1.8), there is no resolution at all.
My first reaction was there was a firewall change or something, but that
is not the case.
1) How can I see if requests are getting to the samba server for dns
2) Is my thinking correct about DNS proxy?
Here is the relevant parts of my smb.conf:
wins support = yes
wins proxy = no
dns proxy = yes
Thank you for your help!
