HI guys

I changed all to automatic and now its not working. can you tell me which go to DNS only and which automatic. these below are all automatic. Many thanks

Automatic is just TTL for how long that DNS lookup is cached. Auto sets it to 5 minutes. This is a good setting.

If something is broken, it’s not because that DNS entry is set to Auto.

I only saw the text output of your list, but it doesn’t include :orange:/:grey:, which might break things.

Localhost probably won’t even let you set to :orange:, but it should be :grey: if there is a :cloud: toggle.

“ftp” should be grey…but even better, just don’t have an FTP entry, as it advertises your host’s IP address. Set your S/FTP client to use the IP address instead.

Which problems are you having?
