Unfortunately, the answer referenced is inaccurate, or at least misleading. There is no requirement for any part of a FQDN to have any relationship to any other part of the FQDN. So the A records (the primary records that resolve to IP addresses) for .com, facebook.com, www.facebook.com, flibble.facebook.com just.another.domain.name.in.facebook.com can all ...

.local is often considered a 'special' domain. avahi/bonjour/mdns etc use it as the domain name, and while you don't say what you are using to serve DNS, I guess it's not avahi. What does the 'hosts' line in /etc/nsswitch.conf look like? nslookup, host, and dig will be using your configured resolvers, however ssh will be using nsswitch.conf, which will ...

When I looked up the specs of this device they say it supports DNS SRV under RFC:2782. You can find the specs here You can find additional information about DNS SRV at RFC2782. Here is some good information using DNS SRV with a SIP implementation:

It definitely sounds like some kind of malware. Check your browser extensions. In Chrome it's the hamburger menu → Tools → Extensions. First, try to disable all of them and check if that strange behavior persists. If not, enable them one by one, each time checking if the redirection still happens. This way you'll be able to track it down to a ...

quite simply - www0.sun.ac.za is a registered dns record (IP is 146.232.66.100), take a look at: http://network-tools.com/default.asp?prog=dnsrec&host=www0.sun.ac.za a dns record doesn't have to be www.xxx.com or similar, it can be anything... try to think of it as "ac" is a record within "za", "sun" is a record within "ac", "www0" is a record within ...

When it "fails", you can see you get an SOA record from a real root server so that means your name server went out the usual path and tried to find the answer out on the Internet. The reason for that is your forwarder (172.21.2.1) didn't respond quick enough so it fell back to finding the answer the normal way. To stop this, you need to add forward only to ...

You're misunderstanding what the router is doing and the pages you're seeing. "LAN SETUP" This page simply configures your LAN. IP Address: This is the IP of your router as seen by your LAN - "the gateway". Subnet: This is the subnet that your LAN devices will be put on DHCP: Start-End range - this is the "pool" of addresses your DHCP server will give ...

First, you have to understand that routers are nothing more than embedded (ultra-compact) computers with specialized networking hardware. The firmware of a router consists of the operating system, drivers, and applications that the router runs. Because routers are embedded devices, these need to be as efficient and small as possible. This is why the ...

A router's firmware does more than just handle networking protocols. It tells the device how to operate. It decides what to do when you turn the device on. It can provide a web, telnet, ssh, etc interface for users to manage it. It contains all the custom settings you set. It does a lot more than just handle networking protocols. Think of it as the ...

Firmware is specific to hardware and it's capabilities. This applies to routers, phones (not only smartphones), big routers, switches, bridges, you name it. There's certain part of firmware that does low-level tasks like reading from Flash/disk storage, the next part tells how to talk to radio or how to talk to an onboard LAN chip. In case of (A)DSL routers ...

You can't use wildcards in /etc/hosts. There no way to do this without DNS server. You have two options: 1) Put every custom host that you need in /etc/hosts (you could automate it with a custom shell script) 2) Simply use a custom local DNS for this task. I would recommend dnsmasq. You just have to use --address=/local/127.0.0.1 parameter in dnsmasq, ...

Looks like dnsmasq is starting correctly. You should test if dnsmasq is correctly working with nslookup test.local 127.0.0.1. To make sure the system is using dnsmasq, you have to update the /etc/resolv.conf to use nameserver 127.0.0.1 as first option. You can also use a custo upstream resolver configuration on dnsmasq with ...

Add a CNAME for the root of ample.co which points to example.com This will only do a DNS redirect. If the server hosting example.com doesn't support the URL ample.co in its list of header addresses, it won't display a page. Another option would be to have an HTTP server for ample.com which does an HTTP Redirect to example.com.

Your missing some periods in the reverse records. Should end with "kilraine.lan.", vice "kilraine.lan". Also, the NS record shouldshould be "dns.kilraine.lan." vice "dns." or "dns.kilraine.lan". If you leave off the terminating period, you're essentially asking BIND to add on the zone name (i.e., you'll end up with dns.kilraine.lan.kilraine.lan). Other ...

dig, host, and nslookup all bypass the system name resolver, and query DNS directly. Thus, they won't see names defined in /etc/hosts (unless they're also defined in the DNS service), or any mDNS (aka Bonjour) .local names, or Computer entries in directory services, or... If you want to see what the system resolver sees, the best tool is dscacheutil. ...

The choice of DNS servers does not really affect connection speed. If your connection is slow, it will remain slow. Only thing is, it might identify hosts faster, but the difference will be a fraction of a second. What a different choice can do is to circumvent censorship. Serious DNS servers (OpenDNS, Google...) do not apply any censorship, but this is not ...

Main thing: you can set first DNS as static entry. Next you can only add/append other DNS servers. So, to set primary DNS server use something like this: netsh interface ip set dns name="Local Area Connection" static 8.8.8.8 for adding/appending other DNS servers you have to use add option, something like this: netsh interface ip add dns name="Local ...

On your client machine, create ~/.ssh/config host box1 hostname 55.55.55.55 user bob host box2 hostname 55.55.55.56 user bob Then "ssh box1", "ssh box2" do the expected things. You can also set other options like port 2222, ForwardX11 yes, ForwardAgent yes etc.

The nslookup command from command prompt will tell you which one it is using (typically your primary). Sometimes typing in a fake domain (hdhsgdh.com) will fail on the first dns server and attempt to use the second. A quick edit: don't type an address after The nslookup command, it will tell you which dns server it is using.

Chrome/Chromium's DNS cache is all in RAM. It appears that restarting Chrome completely will inevitably clear it. The Chromium source for host caching doesn't appear to have any committing to the hard drive for persistence. I can only assume the official Google Chrome does the same thing. The same goes for Firefox. It appears simply restarting Firefox ...

You can use a DNAME record to do this, which on a modern version of DNS software that supports EDNS0 (e.g., BIND9) will do what you want and behave much better than a wildcard CNAME, but still synthesize appropriate CNAMEs on the fly for backwards compatibility with non-EDNS0-aware DNS servers. See RFC 6672 and RFC 2672.

You have to port forward your ports like 80 in your router. Also, what's your TTL? How long was it ago when you changed your DNS records? When your TTL is set to 24 hours (which is standard), it can take up to 24 hours before your DNS records are active. For clarification: the TTL is the value of the time before previous records are deleted. So for example, ...

First of all it looks like your network has a internal DNS Server whitch is 127.0.1.1 . I would think there could be a missconfiguration on that server. A local DNS Server dosent know by default any Internet ips or Hostnames. If the local DNS cant resolve a name he asks other DNS servers. The default DNS server configuration comes along with a list of DNS ...
