The Webroot DNS protection setup helps to enhance the visibility and filtering of the DNS requests without compromising the security or privacy of your device or data.
How to set up Webroot DNS protection
For Webroot DNS protection setup you simply have to follow these steps:
- First things first, make sure to set up your internet connection.
- Go to Webroot Management Console and click on the Sites tab, under which you will find the DNS protection option. From the list on the left select the site of your choice to configure and it will open the DNS protection tab for it.
- To complete this process, go to the Network Settings area at the bottom where you will need to put in the IP address that is being used and proceed to select a policy, and then simply click on the save changes button.
- Next, go to the DNS protection tab once again and from there find out the Network location from the network settings option. This information, however, will not be saved anywhere so there is no need to worry.
Configuring the Network
Now it’s time to configure the network you are using. This final step technically is quite easy but can be complex depending on your understanding.
- First of all you after distinguishing the specific primary and secondary DNS servers you will be using you need to check them to see if they work in order to verify the Webroot DNS server connection.
- To do that you simply have to run a command prompt on your computer>put in nslookup>select Primary DNS server>put in any domain name so that you will receive a response.
- Follow the same steps to check the Secondary DNS server as well. If these tests fail the instead of an answer the command prompt will show “request timed out”. To resolve this you will need to go back to the first step of the process and make sure your internet connection is registered.
- The very final step to complete the process would be to configure your network settings. After you have configured your network simply update the router for your Windows DNS server to ensure smooth functioning.
- All of the above-mentioned steps are quite easy to perform if done carefully. However, even a single mistake here and there in any of the steps can result in the failure of the process and you won’t be able to set up the Webroot DNS protection system. So make sure to follow every step correctly.
