How do I find my DNS servers?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 15, 2009
In windows I can type ipconfig/all to see my DNS servers what can I do in ubuntu to find my primary and secondary DNs servers. Interestingly my Ubuntu network connection is working fine but windows 7 is all fubared and I wanted to try setting a static IP address to see if that fixed it. The problem is I need my DNS servers to do so and I have no idea what they are.

dns servers on ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 29, 2013
In a few days I am jumping on cloudhosting for hosting my websites - and learn a bit more about servers.
But my one problem is the DNS server for my domains I want to host on the cloudhosting.
Any of you got a tutorial for setting up dns server with domain names - a tutorial that is not 5 years old?
specify multiple DNS server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 4, 2008
I simply want to use multiple DNS servers , such as they are specified in Windows like Alternate DNS.
I have tried to edit /etc/resolv.conf to be :
but it seems that it is using only the first entry in the file, so if i comment the first nameserver it will correctly lookup the hosts that are to be found by the second nameserver .... but the machine names corresponding to the first nameserver won't be available...
by the way, how do i flush these changes ???(is it enough to only edit and save the /etc/resolv.conf file?)
thanks in advance!!
Changing DNS in Ubuntu 12.10 and 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 31, 2012
Okay so I was in the process of making Firefox perform Google searches from the address bar and realised that I was being redirected to my ISP's page not found screen. This I determined was because of the DNS that was set by default in Ubuntu to 127.0.1.1 or 127.0.0.1. I went to change this to Googles DNS 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. To do this in previous releases
gksudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf
This no longer works in Ubuntu 12.10 maybe not 12.04 either the only way that I found around this was to:
gksudo gedit /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head
and to add this:
at the bottom. Then run this code to update the resolv.conf file
sudo resolvconf -u
If there is a better way to do this please let me know as I am sure others would appreciate it was well.

ubuntu as DNS server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 12, 2013
I am new here. Hope my post is clear and appropriate.
I configured my ubuntu 12.10 in VMWare as my DNS servers. My friend designed a website. He tried to access his website using my DNS server as preferred DNS server, which is in the same network. I stored his website's domain name and ip address in Forward Look up zone and reverse look up zone.
He failed to access his website but he could access all the other sites like google and yahoo using my DNS since my DNS server is forwarding it to ISP's DNS server.
In short, my DNS server cannot resolvequeries using its data base but simply forwarding queries to ISP's DNS server as I used it as forwarder. Kindly provide me with a solution of how DNS could resolve a query using its database (Forward and Reverse look up zones).
DNS server not working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 8, 2013
I've been trying to configure my own server but I'm currently stuck and I don't know what else to try.
I've got a domain ganganadores.cl and I'm trying to host my own DNS servers.
I'm using ISPConfig 3 and Bind9. I've used the guide from http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ot-ispconfig-3
For some reason the DNS server is not working, if I try pinging ganganadores.cl I get an error as the server can't be found.
http://www.intodns.com/ganganadores.cl shows the same thing.
What can I be doing wrong? here is my ISPConfig.
Dynamic DHCP update to DNS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 31, 2011
Ok, I've thrown everything at this, and I cannot get my Ubuntu 10.04 server to handle dynamic DNS updates from DHCP. The IP lease itself is fine. It's only the DNS update.
Unfortunately, that's worse than where I used to be. In earlier attempts to get it working, I saw error messages about dynamic updates timing out. But now, I get nothing at all.
The last try for dynamic updates gave these messages from the DHCP server's syslog:
IPv6 DNS server using BIND
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 14, 2009
I am trying to setup BIND as a DNS server for local IPv6 name resolution within a LAN.
heres the network:
Ubuntu 8.10 running BIND 9.5.0-P2
IPv4 - 192.168.1.8
IPv6 - fe80::a00:27ff:fe56:7f27/64
hostname - dnsserver
Windows XP SP2
IPv4 - 192.168.1.7
IPv6 - fe80::a00:27ff:fea8:81ed%5
hostname - winclient
Both the IPv6 are autoconfigured, while IPv4 addresses are via DHCP.
As long as iam working with IPv4, things work. I forced dnsserver's IPv4 address on winclient's DNS settings.
i can ping winclient and it resolves its IPv4 address. (i get replies from the IPv4 address)
However, as soon as i add dnsserver's IPv6 address as DNS using
