Hi everyone, I have recentrly bought a Synology router (SRM). I installed the DNS server package (the same one that is on the NAS's I believe, based on Bind) and I am trying to do a simple configuration for my internal home lan.

- I chose my domain to be kta.local
- I created a master zone for forwarding (it creates an NS and A record automatically)
- I created a master zone for reverse (i had to add an NS record manually)
- I enabled resolution services but did not specify any forwarders (what does this mean, do I talk directly to the root servers ?)

Is this correctly configured ? Can you kindly correct any misconfigurations, or help me set it up correctly ? (I need to improve my knowledge on DNS's)

(Images are in Spanish, sorry about that, but you might be familiar with the package configuration UI)

Thank you for your time. :oops:

.local is not depreciated, it's a special use TLD reserved for mDNS (Bonjour/Avahi).

can use .lan as a local TLD perhaps...
