GaiaClosed Check Point security operating system that combines the strengths of both SecurePlatform and IPSO operating systems. uses the Domain Name Service (DNS) to translate host names into IP addresses.

To enable DNS lookups, you must enter the primary DNS server for your system. You can also enter secondary and tertiary DNS servers.

When the system resolves host names, it consults the primary name server. If a failure or time-out occurs, the system consults the secondary name server, and if necessary, the tertiary.

You can also define a DNS Suffix, which is a search for host-name lookup.

Important - From R81, you can configure specific DNS settings in each Virtual System. See the R81 VSX Administration Guide.
