Configure Windows Server to use DNS Protection

If you're using Windows Server as the DNS server, you can configure it to use DNS Protection as the DNS forwarder. To do this, you must add the DNS Protection IP addresses to Windows Server.

To configure Windows Server, do as follows:

  1. In Sophos Central, go to My Products > DNS Protection > Installers.
  2. Next to IP addresses, click Copy to copy the DNS Protection IP addresses.
  3. In Windows Server, open Server Manager.
  4. Go to Tools > DNS.

    Open the DNS page in Windows Server.

  5. Right-click your DNS server and click Properties.

    Go to the DNS properties page in Windows Server.

  6. On the Forwarders tab, click Edit.

    Go the Forwarders tab in DNS properties.

  7. Add the DNS Protection IP addresses you copied from Sophos Central.

  8. Click Apply and then click OK.
