I'd suggest you remove the localhost IP from the first entry, if you actually have a DNS server running on the firewall LAN IP then change it to that.

What's the client you are running to test?

Can you share the ipconfig or /etc/resolv.conf to see if it's puling the right DNS?

If you check your Unbound -> Access Lists, are you seeing the right networks in there?

Do you have a firewall rule to allow all LAN traffic?

i had to rebuild the firewall since i believe the configuration was completely f**ked.
now Unbound dns is working but if i check the option "Register DHCP leases in the DNS Resolver" the service stops. to start it again i have to unchek the flag.
in the and log there are this errors:

May 15 11:49:56   unbound: [97525:0] fatal error: Could not set up local zones
May 15 11:49:56   unbound: [97525:0] error: Bad local-data RR .tortuga.local IN A 192.168.0.100

but i don't really know what they mean...

Looks like there is a device in your network that advertises an empty hostname.

as long i can remember maybe there's a client without hostname which actually has an ip given by the dhcp.
and the ip 192.168.0.100 is free...

It might be nothing, but did you see the space after RR in "...RR .tortuga.local..."? I guess the FQDN should be RR.tortuga.local (without the space)?!... Or is RR short for Round Robin?!...  :-\

"RR" is not something i wrote anywhere, it comes from opnsense (intended as "from the service")
