Every so often with pfSense I get “phantom” entries of pfSense’s hostname to incorrect VLAN gateway addresses. You can remove these incorrect entries – which appear in
/etc/hosts but they will auto-magically reappear when Unbound is restarted.
The solution is to configure the DNS Resolver by:
- Disabling automatically added host entries
Services/DNS Resolver/Advanced Settings/Disable Auto-added Host Entries
- Manually adding a Host Name Override for the router
