I’ve just started learning VyOS. I followed the quick start guide so far. I noticed that after the initial guide, I had setup a dns forwarder, but had not configured local name resolution. dig always failed. I found the command to set it (set system name-server ). I set it to 188.8.131.52 and voila, I had resolution.
Issue is, when I eventually go live, I want the local machine’s dns lookups to go through the local forwarder, because I will log all of the lookups in a central logger. So I removed that nameserver and added 127.0.0.1. Well, resolution fails.
Only firewall rules I created are in the quick start guide (Quick Start — VyOS 1.4.x (sagitta) documentation), which I didn’t think would block loopback requests.
What am I doing wrong?
