Networking Requirements

As shown in Figure 4-8, the enterprise does not deploy a DNS server. The route between the RouterA and the DNS server or between the RouterA and the FTP server is reachable. The mapping between the domain name ( of the FTP server and the IP address is recorded on the DNS server. Enterprise users expect to access the FTP server through the DNS domain name. To facilitate maintenance, the enterprise users are unaware of the DNS server address change.

Configuration Roadmap

The configuration roadmap is as follows:

  1. Configure DNS Proxy on the AC to implement domain name resolution for clients.


    After DNS Proxy is enabled, the RouterA can be regarded as the DNS server of HostA. You need to configure the RouterA's IP address as the IP address of the DNS server on HostA, and configure the IP address ( of the DNS server on the Internet network on the RouterA. In this way, when the DNS server address changes, you only need to modify the configurations on the RouterA, which is not detected by the users.


  1. Configure an IP address for GE1/0/0.

    <Huawei> system-view
    [Huawei] sysname RouterA
    [RouterA] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/0
    [RouterA-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] ip address
    [RouterA-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] quit

  2. Configure DNS Proxy.

    [RouterA] dns proxy enable
    [RouterA] dns resolve
    [RouterA] dns server

  3. Configure the default route from the DNS proxy to the DNS server.

    Assume that the IP address of the next hop from the DNS proxy to the DNS server is

    [RouterA] ip route-static
    [RouterA] quit

  4. Specify the IP address of the DNS server on HostA as
  5. Verify the configuration.

    # Run the display current-configuration command to view the DNS proxy configuration on RouterA.

    <RouterA> display current-configuration | include dns 
     dns resolve                                                                    
     dns server                                                             
     dns proxy enable                                                               

    # Run the ping command on LAN HostA. You can see that the ping operation succeeds

    C:\Documents and Settings\HostA>ping
      PING [] with 32 bytes of data:
        Reply from bytes=32 time=16ms TTL=255
        Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255
        Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255
        Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255
    Ping statistics for
        Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0(0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
        Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 16ms, Average = 4ms
