How do you determine what dns severs the firewall is using for resolution

I setup google dns for for the wan port in the initial setup but can't find the dns servers in the configuration.  Where are they.

2nd question is that when I have a static system with the google dns servers set it will not resolve unless I change it to the gate way address for the zywall.  Is there something I have to enable to have that work?  manuals do not have enough information in the inital configuration.

    Hi @dota069,


    You can find the settings on CONFIGURATION > System > DNS > Domain Zone Forwarder.

    Use the DNS System screen to configure the ZyWALL to use a DNS server to resolve domain names. 

    You can also set an extra DNS server
