When you do a request for 'test.fr' your browser does a lookup for the IP address for 'test.fr' and then does a SYN for that IP address. If the DNS answer your client gets back (an IP address) is not the same value you have there for this object then it won't match the rule.
Your PC is asking (something) for DNS and getting an answer which is not 192.168.1.1, so you'll need to investigate your DNS resolution in your network.
Thanks for the explanations.
Please tell me how could I do what I want (without modifying the host file) : I would like to associate "test.fr" with 192.168.1.1 for each "test.fr" request from a client.
Is it possible ?
No idea ?
Reminder : I would like to associate "test.fr" with 192.168.1.1 for each "test.fr" request from a client without modifying the host file. And I use transparent DNS.
Technical support :
Based on the topic you created, you'd like typing "example.fr" to map to an IP (192.168.1.1) on clients behind the firewall? If you're running transparent DNS, there's nothing you can configure on the firewall that will do that. The client will always do a DNS lookup for the hostname given, unless you modify its local hosts file.
Hosts objects are used to tell the firewall to do a reverse lookup on addresses it sees connections to, and don't have any impact on what clients see.
If you'd like to continue using transparent DNS, the easiest option would be to contact your local nameserver admin to add an A record for example.fr > 192.168.1.1.
