Help with F26 server running unbound for LAN

asked 2017-09-12 15:39:12 -0600

Sorry for the jumbled details. I think I just need an idea of where to look.


I have an f26 server running unbound on my lan in the same subnet as the gateway and fedora 26 workstation running gnome with NM enabled and the first ipv4 dns listing is the server running unbound. The unbound server has all of the lan host names in /etc/hosts.

I can run dig *some_host_on_the_lan*.local +trace and am told that the local unbound server answered the request and gave me the correct information.

What isn't working is I can't ping a hostname on my lan. I can ping the ip address 192.x.x.x.

What I've done so far - verified that unbound is enabled and started and is not showing errors - verified that firewalld has port 53 open for tcp and udp - stopped docker running on the unbound server - stopped libvirtd running on the unbound server - checked nmcli dev show | grep DNS lists the unbound server as the first dns resolver

Most likely the cause of my confusion is some simple thing I don't understand about networking, but I'm not sure where to look next. TIA for any advice.

hmmm... would you please try something other than .local domain? You said it is using unbound... but .local domains are a little special and might be resolved by avahi. (But I still don't know why you can't ping it).
