DNS Server

TrafMeter has built-in DNS Server which allows to translate the human-readable domain name (for example, www.wikipedia.org) into the machine-readable IP address (for example, 208.75.134.23). It can function as a Caching or Forwarding DNS Server which answers to DNS queries from clients either from its cache or forward it to other DNS server which can respond to the query.

Why DNS Server is present in TrafMeter?

The main purpose of built-in DNS Server in TrafMeter is to have "all-in-one" box for Internet Gateway Software (it is really important for Windows XP or Vista). Second, DNS Server plays a key role when the traffic limit is over and TrafMeter displays the page "Sorry, your traffic limit is exceeded".
