Windows DNS to Proxy (wingate)

April 19, 2013 at 20:33:37
Specs: Windows home server 2011, 2gb
Hi,
I am running a DNS and 3rd party proxy on windows home server 2011 (based on windows server 2008 R2). I want the DNS to forward on to the proxy. Is there any way I can do this without plugging modem into the server then the router.
Please note - I already set up router to forward on to the dns.

I think you may be confused as to how dns works.

You can't set your router to 'forward' dns to the dns server on your home server so this statement makes no sense

I want the dns to forward on to the proxy also doesn't make any sense since you are running both a dns server and proxy server on the home server.

How about you start at the top and tell us what you are trying to accomplish so perhaps you can give you a suggestion.

Sorry but it is clear you don't understand the purpose for dns if you want "dns to to my proxy" It and a proxy server don't work that way.

Your routers wan port should be pointing to a internet dns server not a local proxy server or it won't work. The routers dhcp server should be disabled since the proxy server is between it and your lan clients. You configure the proxy server to provide dhcp which lists the proxy server as gateway to your lan clients.

This is your basic proxy setup.
