#795 closed bug (fixed)

RestartDnsmasq should never redirect DNS queries

Reported by: tilman.vogel@… Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: fon-base-firmware Version: Unknown
Severity: unknown
Cc: Hardware: unknown


shows that when in "Offline" state, the fonera answers all DNS queries with the same answer:

This is useless in offline mode, because that IP is not reachable in that state.

It also has the effect that while offline, clients will retrieve this misinformation, cache it and get confused when going back online.

The TTL of 1 second seems not to be honored by some client software. Firefox and Google Chrome at least take about a minute after the connection is back Online until they recover.

I recommend to remove that redirection altogether as it has no benefit.

As part of the upcoming firmware release, we're reviewing old open tickets to see if they are still relevant, which is why you get this response now.

This redirection will be removed in the, for exactly the problems you're describing. See ticket #898 for details.
