DNS

Postby drepouille » Sat Jan 26, 2013 4:04 pm

Does it matter which DNS addresses I use? I have been setting all church computers to static IP addresses, but I can't decide which DNS IPs to use. Some use the DNS from the ISP, while others use a Google DNS. Does the Church have DNS servers?

I have noticed that the church provided firewalls typically have DNS addresses of 8.8.8.8 and 4.2.2.2. I don't know if they belong to the Church. This information is reported by running the "ipconfig /all" command on a connected computer.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

Neither belong to the church. 8.8.8.8 is Google. The story behind 4.2.2.2 seems to be a bit complex, but it's not church.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

The story (whichever version you read) really is fascinating, but currently this one resolves to Level 3 Communications.
