Set up your DNS to Lumu - Windows 10

Windows 10

Setting up Lumu on a Windows client 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 Windows 10 operating system. If you are looking for Lumu Agent configuration for Windows, check our documentation.
