Current BT DNS addresses


[link to this post]
 
I look after a few clients who use BT Business Broadband...

I've just had a few hiccups with their DNS addresses.
I used to use 194.72.6.57 - is this no longer any good?
213.120.62.97 is still working.

BT's broadband HELP pages point to these settings http://btbusiness.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_...

It might be me being dim but 'dns01.gpn.register.com' doesn't look right - I'm guessing they might be web HOSTING DNS not ADSL?!

Can anyone shed any light on this?
Thanks...

Thanks for that, I'll make a note.

Accurate BT documentation would help wink

My Business Infinity picks up:

Primary DNS: 194.72.9.38
Secondary DNS: 62.6.40.162

I believe BT has several sets of DNS pairs that are referenced - as for the Algorithm - who knows! The probably only put one set in the documentation

I have seen my Secondary as a Primary elsewhere and my Primary as a Secondary ...

But their documentation has non-numerical characters in it - for a DNS address?!

My Windows system only allows numerical digits...

Well you need a DNS server to resolve those addresses!

dns01.gpn.register.com 98.124.192.1
dns02.gpn.register.com 98.124.197.1
dns03.gpn.register.com 98.124.193.1
dns04.gpn.register.com 98.124.194.1
dns05.gpn.register.com 98.124.196.1

Yep - that's what I'm getting at!

Which leaves me to think those DNS addresses aren't for ADSL - pls see first post tongue

Just for the record (and for my reference when I next need them!)
After quite a struggle talking to BT Care via Twitter over the last few days - and having to complete one of their 'twitter forms' as they were unable to answer what I thought was a simple query, they've replied this morning.

Current BT DNS Servers
194.72.9.34
194.72.9.38
194.74.65.68
194.74.65.69
194.72.0.98
194.72.0.114
62.6.40.178
62.6.40.162

They have a number of Help pages on their website supposedly documenting and linking to ADSL DNS addresses but they don't actually document the server addresses!

Hopefully BT will correct their online docs so that when people reference it a 10 minute job doesn't turn into a 3 day one frown

Four management committee meetings to make an initial recommendation, plus three to seven with union reps in case staffing levels may be affected - think of the number of man hours consumed in those three days - are needed before any such website change can be made.
