Never been tested nor inntended for this purpose.
The limitations will be RAM, but I don't know how may bytes an entry takes.
It sounds like you need a DNS server.
I'm trying to get away with setting up another server if I don't have to as the SnapGear gui is simpleto use and does what I need it to do.
Any chance of gettting the info on how many bytes per entry?
With the EOL of the product, we don't have the testing engineers to determine this.
i would suggest you go with trial and error....have a look at the memory size with ps of the DNS proxy without entries, then add 50 at a time. The 560, having a quarter of the RAM of the 580, will hit its maximum resourses first.
I though you might have some numbers from a doc somewhere you could dig up. I'm trying to do it on the SG580, looks like I'll need to setup a minimal linux host for this.
you will then have the normal features of a DNS server which I imagine you will desire at some stage....MX, CNAME records etc
We have the external DNS taken care of already (mx etc), we are a bit strange that there are a lots of internal hosts that don't need an internet DNS but only for internal private ip / purpose therefore the need for the least complex server that just does a little bit only.
I'm haflway setting up a small linux virtual machine for this purpose
