nameserver

I have a new installation.  Apparently Windoze can ask the modem to do DNS lookup but I use Linux and Solaris(Unix) which need to do their own lookup.  I need the ip address of two DNS nameservers I can use.  Probably the same ones the modem uses will work.

Re: nameserver

  I'm using Linux 18.3 and Firefox 64.0 .  I've never needed to enter a DNS anywhere to get my connection to work, but under administration, hardware, network, it says the DNS is 192.168.0.1, which is actually the address of the modem.  Googling DNS Linux I also found:   208.67.220.220, 208.67.222.222

 

  Hope this helps.

 

  BTW I'm glad to see that you use the proper spelling for Windoze.  Smiley Embarassed)>

Re: nameserver

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.  The addresses you suggest work ok so far even without registering with opendns.com.

 

The nameserver(s) your computer is using will probably be located in /etc/resolv.conf.

 

Best regards,

Fred
