    Hi

    Is there a way to make Layer 7 resolve some hostnames, tried adding hosts to /etc/hosts file. Didn't work properly.

    Thanks in advance

    Good afternoon,

     

    The gateway will use the local OS system resolver for hostnames where it is installed so either a configured DNS server in /etc/resolv.conf or static entries in /etc/hosts. I would also recommend reviewing the configuration of the resolver order on the OS to make sure that the file is viewed first ( /etc/nsswitch.conf).

     

    Sincerely,
