DNS Manager - Can't create records with LAN IPs
DNS Manager - Can't create records with LAN IPs

Apologies if this has come up before but I could not find anything on this through searching. There seems to be a bug with the DNS Manager in that it does not accept LAN IPs (eg. Class A address like 10.x.x.x or class C like 192.168.x.x).

We setup a server in house for testing / dev purposes.

After creating the default DNS records, which created the usual @, mail, ns1 and ns2 records with the Public IPs, if we attempted to change the existing records or create new records with LAN IPs, Sentora comes back with :-


IP Address is not a valid IPV4 address.

Even if we tried with the example provided by Sentora ( shown on the DNS Manager page :-

The A record contains an IPv4 address. Its target is an IPv4 address, e.g. ''.

it still comes back with the same error that it is not a valid IPV4 address.

As this is an internal only server, we want it to recognise / resolve to local IP addresses.

Is there a trick to this or is this a bug ?


Thanks given by:
