Identity Awareness

Hey all

I had a question that bug me this day , was it mandatory or not to set up internal dns instead of the isp one when you have identity awareness enabled on your gateway?

thanks in advance

DNS is not relevant to Identity Awareness.

What is relevant is the connection to Active Directory, which can happen via WMI or using the Identity Collector.

You can also use RADIUS Accounting or the Identity Awareness API.

Yes. So once firewall gets request, it send to AD for authentication and if it is successful then User to IP mapping is done and connections is allowed. There is no concern with DNS for identity awareness.
