Set up your DNS to Lumu - Apple macOS

Apple macOS

Setting up a Lumu Gateway on a macOS device is the configuration recommended for testing purposes as we recommend you configure your server or your router to take the most advantage of the Lumu Continuous Compromise Assessment on your entire network.

Remember to first register your public IP address or group of IPs as a gateway for your company at the Lumu Portal before configuring your DNS.

In this guide, we will walk you through the DNS configuration process for a Mac operating system.

Requirements

  1. A device running a macOS operating system.

The Lumu DNS resolvers IPv4 addresses are:

The final step is to verify that your DNS connections are correctly routed through Lumu. See Validate your DNS Settings for more information.
