Configuring DNS Settings

The DNS Settings menu allows the administrator to configure the hostname and DNS server addresses. The DNS server configuration is required.

To configure the hostname and DNS settings:

  1. In the Network menu, check the DNS Settings radio button. The Network menu displays the fields for entering the DNS Settings.
  2. Figure 7-5

  3. Enter the Hostname for the SSL VPN Concentrator. The hostname identifies the SSL VPN Concentrator on the network. Use only letters and numbers for the hostname; do not enter non-alphanumeric characters such as spaces or apostrophes.
  4. In the Primary DNS Server field, enter the IP address of your DNS server.
  5. In the Secondary DNS Server field, enter the IP address of a backup DNS server for redundancy.
  6. In the DNS Domain field, enter the domain name of your network. This field is optional and is not required for most network environments.
  7. Click Apply to update the configuration.

    Note: If you update the SSL VPN gearhost hostname, you must restart the SSL VPN Concentrator for the change to take effect. DNS settings changes take effect immediately.
