Set up your DNS to Lumu - Windows Server

Windows Server

In this guide, we will walk you through the DNS configuration process for a Windows Server. Setting up Lumu for Continuous Compromise Assessment on a server is the deployment recommended for enterprises with a DNS infrastructure where all the traffic is directed to the internet through a server. If you want more context on Lumu Deployment scenarios, consult our documentation.

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.

Requirements

  1. A server running a Windows Server operating system.
