Hi Quebec

For dishworld to work you need to block googles DNS using static routes in your router if you need a hand with this just pm me your router model and I'll find some instructions.

Thanks

Is it all the DNS servers or just the nz one? I'm on the way to my office now as soon as I get there I'll check it out.

albi90: Hi All 

Im a kiwi living in Australia and have built a new smart DNS system for geo unblocking services from around the world. I'm now looking for some testers to test the service before I put it in to public beta. The site has a few unique features that no other smart DNS has.
1) you can have up to 3 locations (different internet connections) unblocked.
2) you can add your own URLs (upto 20) to unblock and what country you want to make the URLs think your coming from.
3) you can disable services you don't want

it also supports dynamic dns so if you dont have a fixed IP you don't have to worry. For a full list of channels the service currently supports see https://dns4me.net/channels 
If your keen on helping me to improve the service, goto the contact us page on https://dns4me.net and send me a message with the username you would like.

Thanks
Jason K


Considering DNS is only a directory service, it has absolutely no effect on websites viewer source IP access controls.

If sites are merely using DNS geo-location to send viewers to different hosts based on their DNS request source IP, this is a pretty laughable control.

Can you elaborate?

Ok, cheers for that.

By my reading of it, you are using DNS as a mechanism to set yourselves up as a MITM (man in the middle) proxy.

What are you going to do when the content providers use HTTPS and/or DNSSEC?

Do the content provider's not check the 'x-forwarded-for' header?

Our system fully supports SSL (with out any certs needed) and works on non TLS sni devices even the custom domains, how we do this is a trick of the trade.
DNSSEC is along was away from being widespread even if it does become the default we still have some ways around it.
x-forwarded-for header is only relevant if its sent ;)

It's working again now. I didn't have a chance to try one of the non-NZ DNS's, bit willgive it a whirl if it happens again!

Cheers.

Hi Jason,

The DNS servers have gone down again.

The error message is that the nameserver failed.

Down again today. Same problems as above - NF working via laptops, using the hostfile on router, but Roku Netflix failing to connect to one of the three netflix servers with "nw-2-5" error.

Out of curiosity, I set unotelly (which I'm still paid up for) into my main router DNS settings, and bingo.

Now, this *may* have something to do with my more complex setup, where I assign a different DNS (dns4me's) to the Roku, while using Bigpipe's for everything else.

Will try again using a non-NZ dns4me address....

[EDIT: working with sydney & oregon servers. Something up with NZ one?]

Unotelly possibly has there server in an unaffected area.

Nah its just Akamai it sends you to the closest server based on the dns servers location, so by changing the dns server you get given a different Akamai caching server.  There is usually a flow on effect when netflix has and issue so it might have already passed the AUS server.
