=== Getting rid of Open DNS Forwarder ===
 
'''-This is set when AAISP configure the router.'''
dns server config state=disabled
saveall
 
*Then re-test from the Control Pages: https://clueless.aa.net.uk/dnsresolvers.cgi
 
 
What this does, is tells the DHCPv4 server to directly give out the addresses of AAISP's recursive DNS servers and not its, own, and then completely disable the integral DNS forwarder (notice the DHCP server can only be reconfigured while disabled).
 
The router may still be wanting to use itself as a resolver for internal lookups - ege.g. looking up names from it'sits configuration such as time servers etc. Telnet in to the router and set it to use the ISPs DNS servers, ege.g.:
 
dns client dnsadd addr=217.169.20.20 port=53
 
NB: You can check if Legacy IP addresses are running an Open Recursive server using the website:- http://security.zensupport.co.uk/recdns/
