To start taking advantage of Lumu Gateways, you need to configure your DNS resolver device to point all DNS requests to Lumu's IP addresses, substituting the automatic DNS servers provided by your internet service provider (ISP).
We recommend doing this procedure on
your edge DNS equipment
, typically a router, DNS, or DHCP server in your company. Typically, the device that provides an internal non-routable IP address (DHCP) or the device that serves as your default gateway is also where you configure public DNS servers. Most often this will be a DNS server or a router—this might be your DSL router or cable modem if that is the only router in your network.
Some ISPs hard-code their DNS servers into the equipment they provide. If you are using such a device, you will not be able to configure it to use Lumu. Instead, you can configure each one of your devices (desktops, servers, etc).
The process for changing your DNS settings varies according to the operating system (OS) and versions (Windows, Mac, or Linux) or the device (desktop, DNS server, router, or mobile device). For authoritative information, please consult the vendor documentation. We have created the following guides to help you with this configuration:
