Interfaces

Last Updated: 12/12/2016

Interfaces is a container for DNS interface settings.

DNS settings can be divided into two primary groups—global settings and interface settings. Global settings apply to the protocols as a whole and are applied across all network interfaces. Interface settings are specific to a particular network interface.
