    Hello guys, since I have a large ddos protected server, so I want my server to serve as a gateway for protection.

    This is what I did so far:
    Add a dns zone > domain and external IP > Edit dns zone >
    WWW IN CNAME domain.com
    domain.com IN A external_IP

    But when I try to access it I get this:
    Executing in an invalid environment for the supplied user

    So my question is:
    How to point a domain name to an external IP address?
