Routing / DNS issues?


Recommended Posts

To expand on the MSN conversation we're having so everyone knows, my DNS servers can't be pinged from UK but can from US.


Would say its purely routing, not DNS


Ping isn't the best form of a test. from a CMs prompt do a "ipconfig /flushdns" then type ping http://www.bbc.co.uk if it resolves the IP address then you know pings working.


A good one to do to test routing is also from a CMD prompt is "tracert IP address", IP address of your DNS server. This will show you how you pc is trying to get to the DNS server. If it gets there then you know its not a routing issue.


Hope this helps.
