Which DNS is used by the Norton Core ?

Hi. I have a Norton Core connected to my Meraki Firewall today (because like I said on my first topic. I need some feature who is not actually in the Norton Core). When I connect my Meraki to a site-to-site VPN, all my assets connected to my Norton Core aren't able to resolve DNS Request. My network is set to use the Norton DNS for more safety. Is it possible to know which one is used ? Thanks again, Take care !

Or, when I checked a few minutes ago, Level 3 United States. Norton DNS seems to switch between them (sometimes it's both).

The phone app says: "Norton (Default): Norton DNS provides content-filtering policies that help block unsafe, fraudulent, and phisihing websites from entering your protected network."

SoulAsylum, you said you had questions out to Norton about this - have you found out if Level 3/NTT DNS provide these policies?

I just did a dnsleaktest.com and used parental control to block a category.  It appears to work with these DNS servers.

garlen I haven't received anything since the 23rd of January regarding an official answer. I poked the admin again with the same question asking whether there's anything new in that discussion.

Thanks for the DNSleak website. It used the NTT DNS. I will work on this this weekend :)
