This article describes the Static Host Mapping feature of the Datto Networking Appliance (DNA).

The Static Host Mapping feature allows an operator to specify an IP address to resolve for a given hostname when queried by an internal client on the LAN. In the networking field, this feature is sometimes called "DNS Host Override" or "DNS Static Host Mapping."
To access the Static Host Mapping card, log into the DNA web interface, and click Security, as shown in Figure 1.
