Hi Everyone

I am having issues with some content filtering reporting software I am using. It seems that most of the internet traffic I am monitoring is going via a Google Cache Node. Internet connection is with Snap and are using their DNS servers. Most of the traffic on the report seems to go via and which from what Snap have told me is a Google caching node.

Is anyone aware of a DNS server I can use where Googles nodes won't be affecting my reports. I have asked Snap if its possible for them to disable caching on the internet connection but this isn't possible apparently.

I hope this makes sense.

Google dont go fully based off of DNS, Your IP will be seen as coming from SNAP and you will be directed there. There really should be no problems caused by GGC tho, Why exactly is the problem and have you tried contacting the software vendor?

Most problems are the result of previous solutions...
