DNS with static IP

Objective:

Connect devices with a static IP to the internet with DNS server settings pointing to ASA

Background:

All devices connected to the ASA by a dynamic IP assigned by the ASA's DHCP server are provided with the DNS server settings from the ASA. If I assign a static IP address to a device (Windows) and set the ASA as the default gateway and as the DNS server, I get no internet connection. This has worked with a Juniper device I had before.

 

So my question would be how do can I make the ASA assign the DNS server information to a device which has a static IP.

*I can establish a connection to the internet by entering an outside DNS server directly on the (Windows) machine that requires internet access, e.g. 1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8 but this is not what I want.

Re: DNS with static IP

No, this wouldn't work. You have two options:

1. Statically assign DNS servers on the client machine 

OR

2. If the ASA allows it, you should be able to assign the client a static lease by reservation. Though I believe not all versions will have this option.
