    need test dns lookups from around the world

    I am trying to debug a dns problem.

    What I need is for you to do a dns lookup and report:

    1) the address that was returned, the last octect will do.
    2) the area of the world you queried from

    The answers *will* vary because the dns server is geolocation enabled. Or, at least they *should* vary. But, someone claims its buggered.

    The host name to lookup is:

    ssl.dnsmasq.com

    Thanks in advance,

    Sydney, Brisbane, LA, Dallas all give me the same answer (205).

    Edit: here's another 20 or so - looks like it's 205 or nothing...

    Hi Foobic,

    That's a great tool you posted.

    205 would be okay for Brisbane.
    215 was returned in the tool you linked to for Mexico City.

    That's great, because the split is:

    205=AFRINIC, APNIC, ARIN
    215=IANA, LACNIC, RIPE

    So, I still need lookups from AFRINIC and RIPE space.

    Thanks!

    Try this tool. For each result you can click on it to get a detailed log which includes the IP returned from the lookup.

    Hi Wkkay,

    Yes, that was another very helpful tool.
    Results were as expected.
    I got the additional Ripe results, so that makes the survey complete.

    Thanks to both of you!
