All about getting online, dealing with (W)ISPs, (Wireless) Internet Service Providers, and some about the devices we use, including mobile phones. A tech' general discussion. Some DNS, OpenNIC chat, et cetera is okay.

@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.orgHi, I'm a bit confused about public / private WiFi gateways and their relation to DNS servers10:16:52
@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.orghere's the setup: I want to connect to either an open or private WiFi network and do a few DNS requests (I'm using a ESP32 device, but I guess the question is generic)10:17:18
@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.org when I'm using the device API using a library called WiFi.hostByName(myserver) I get the correct result 10:17:44
@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.orgnow I also want to do TXT queries, and there is no API for that10:17:55
@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.org so I'm crafting my UDP/DNS packets and sending them using sendto, where I have to specify the host to which I send them 10:18:16
@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.orgsince this is a DNS query, I think it's not necessarily proper to send it directly to an hardcoded DNS server like 8.8.8.8. should I instead direct it to a local DNS server for the WiFi access point? And how do I know which one?10:19:01
@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.orgI've tried retrieving the gateway IP and sending the request there but it does not work10:19:16
@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.org(I don't get an answer to the DNS request)10:19:26
@oulipo83:matrix.org@oulipo83:matrix.orgI'm not sure what is the way to do this?10:19:33

Is there any network configuration received by DHCP that includes DNS server? Maybe you need to request it from the system?
