A Domain Name System (DNS) is a host naming mechanism in character string format of TCP/IP to establish the mapping between domain names and IP addresses It is a mechanism of mapping easy!to!remember and meaningf"l domain names to IP addresses recogni#able for networ$ de%ices DNS deli%ers the following f"nctions& Device Serving as a DNS Client Device Serving as a DNS Proxy Device Serving as a DDNS Client After yo" specify the DNS ser%er address on the de%ice' the de%ice can ser%e as the DNS client or DNS pro(y to send domain name resol"tion re)"ests to the DNS ser%er Adding a DNS Server The DNS ser%er accepts the domain name resol"tion re)"ests initiated by the DNS client *o" can statically set an IP address for the DNS ser%er connected to the de%ice thro"gh this tas$ The IP address of the DNS ser%er is generally pro%ided by the ISP In addition' it can also be a"tomatically obtained' which re)"ires the connection type of at least one interface to be config"red as D+CP or PPPo, The priority of the DNS ser%er whose IP address is statically config"red is higher than the one whose IP address is dynamically obtained -or the DNS ser%ers whose IP addresses are config"red in the same way' the one that has an IP address (either obtaining a"tomatically or config"red statically) earlier en.oys a higher priority /hen resol%ing domain names' the de%ice sends )"ery pac$ets (according to the priorities) to DNS ser%ers "ntil the )"ery s"cceeds Step 1 Choose Network 0 DNS 0 DNS Step 2 ,nter the IP address of the DNS ser%er in the DNS Server ist te(t bo( Step !
