Also posted on the Vodafone forum but have reposted here as this one is maybe a bit more active!


Hi,

I'm having problems with 203.109.129.67 (ns1.ihug.co.nz).
Using nslookup connected to ns1, lookups are timing out after 2 seconds.

203.109.129.68 (ns2.ihug.co.nz) seems to be running fine and responding quickly.

Is anyone else seeing this issue? I don't see any current faults in the network status section.

Cheers.

The instruction manual that was supplied with your ADSL modem or router will have full details on how to enter these settings correctly. Some brands of router will ask for the DNS settings. If required these are

Preferred DNS server: 203.109.129.67
Alternate DNS server: 203.109.129.68

Thanks, but I had no configuration problems at my end, I just had queries to ns1 timing out and ns2 was fine.
It seems to be resolved now.

Cheers.
