If it is behind a gateway router, how is port 53 traffic getting from
the internet to that DNS server in the first place.
Also ... IF you are PORT FORWARDING port 53 from the internet to the DNS
server, then the SOURCE IP will not be the IP of the forwarding device,
but the IP of the machine making the request.
If this device is really behind a firewall why are you even forwarding
any traffic to it from port 53 in the first palce?
