FAQ 92: Set different DNS servers via Group Policy

Category: BlockedIP function

Using a Group Policy in Active Directory (AD) can allow some users to browse the Internet without the restrictions imposed by DNS Redirector.

This is one way to assign different DNS servers to different users.


See kb294785, DNS Servers section.

Under DNS Servers click Enable, then type the IP address of your internal Active Directory (AD) Domain Controller (DC) DNS server.

Users who you decide get this Group Policy applied will use the internal DNS service and not the DNS Redirector service (as normally provided to everyone via DHCP), therefore these users won't be filtered.

You could also use this method to assign different DNS Redirector instances to different user groups, thereby creating different filtering policies.
