Your DNS Servers List
« on: November 12, 2016, 18:31:55 »
If you changed your DNS server list during the recent outage and would like to restore it to its original condition, then here are some links showing how to do that.

Typically your ISP provider determines the DNS server to be used. It is probably a good idea to stay with your ISP's choice of DNS server unless you fully understand the implications of changing it in your local settings.


Windows DNS Server Settings
Reference Win 7 
Reference Win 8
Reference Win 10

Windows Summary:
Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network & Sharing Center >
{select your connection} > Properties > Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) >
Properties > Use the following DNS server addresses >
{edit DNS addresses} > OK > {OK out of remaining windows}



MAC DNS Server Settings
Reference Mac

Mac Summary:
System Preferences > Network > Advanced > DNS > DNS Servers >
{edit DNS addresses} > OK  > Apply > Cmd-W

Sometimes the ISP-provided DNS servers fail to resolve our IP address. That issue might happen under very rare conditions in which the ISP servers cache IPs and there is an IP change for our server that runs Nikongear. We had that problem about 1 year and switching to another set of DNS servers helped temporarily solve the issue for most users.

Sorry Andrea, too cryptic.

Or am I being really dense?

Not dense at all.

Spam bots occasionally enter in disguise of an ordinary NG member. We weed these out when they are discovered either by their existence on known spam bot lists, or because of a spamming activity.

Colin --
Some bots can negotiate the creation of a membership account on a forum or other website. Or, in some cases, a human being creates the membership and then turns the bot loose. We don't have a way to know what is going on here. Typically a bot posts meaningless responses on the forum similar to this one.And often includes links to advertising sites. As an occasional Admin here, I look at the membership details and run a trace on the IP address for "suspicious" members. The IP address for Christina is on several Spam lists. So Bjørn blocked Christina Bot.
