DISCUSSION

When using DMZ Gateway as a proxy, the DNS lookup is handled on EFT. With the registry setting below, you can specify whether to do DNS lookups on the local EFT Server or DMZ Gateway Server. Enabling this feature would allow secured environments.  that may have limited or no DNS services, to handle the lookup in the DMZ zone. It is also useful if the customer has configured a split DNS between EFT and DMZ Gateway. 

With this setting enabled, all outbound ClientFTP transfers in which Socks5 is used (DMZ Gateway) will send a host name to DMZ Gateway.
