Why DNS is resolving synthetic IP address for the publicly hosted URL

when I am trying to resolve the URL which is publicly hosted, the DNS getting resolved as synthetic IP,
Actually it should resolved to the public IP address.


  • Is the FQDN matching any of the applications defined under ZPA application segments?
  • You should see FQDN resolving to synthetic IP range if it matches ZPA app segment.
  • If the FQDN is resolving to an IP in the subnet then this could be matching SIPA app segment.
