My Win7 box is erroneously resolving a IP address.
I had the same problem last week and "fixed" that by switching to Google Public DNS 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 for IPV4 and the others for IPv6.
So when I do an ipconfig /all it says the DNS servers are indeed pointing at Google but on any other outside system this resolves just fine, internally however it does not.
When I do a tracert it resolves to the wrong address as with a Ping.
When I say the wrong address it resolves to the correct server but Im using a secondary IP on the server for a website and it's resolving to the servers primary IP not the secondary so the site 404s "only on this machine" so it's not a server setup issue.
Ive checked the Hosts file in etc/Drivers and no entries are in there.
The machine itself it on a LAN, not really sure of its status, I dont think it's being controlled by a domain as it's just in Workgroup>Workgroup with no DOMAIN prefix as I would normally expect.
It is getting it's IP from a DHCP server but as above I am overriding the DNS settings locally with the
Use the following DNS server addresses
which is showing up in IPconfig as I would expect 184.108.40.206 etc.
So my question is what else could be overriding the resolution of my domain name to the proper IP address between my machine and the internet.
I should also add that if I put an entry INTO Hosts file for the domain >> IP it will resolve correctly. So it's not being "absolutely" overridden / hijacked.
Using NSLookup I get the following for both my domain and even just for www.google.com
It would seem that 1: The machine is using IPV6 by default (is this normal?) and 2. it's not resolving properly via Google Public DNS on IPV6
So if 2 is correct ,would this mean the machine will fall back to using LAN DNS settings??
