  1. DNS -- nameservers for .org TLD don't respond when queriednon-recursively

    My domain is obliqueuniverse.org. I want to check to make sure that
    the parent zone's nameservers have properly delegated to my domain.

    I believe the following command outputs all-and-only TLD nameservers
    for the .org TLD:

    % nslookup -type=ns org.

    Server: 192.168.2.2
    Address: 192.168.2.2#53

    org nameserver = tld1.ultradns.net.

    org nameserver = a0.org.afilias-nst.info.
    org nameserver = b0.org.afilias-nst.org.
    org nameserver = c0.org.afilias-nst.info.
    org nameserver = d0.org.afilias-nst.org.

    tld2.ultradns.net internet address = 204.74.113.1
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    When I query tld2.ultradns.net (the last one in the list) , I get what
    I think is confirmation of correct delegation:

    % nslookup -type=ns -norecurse obliqueuniverse.org tld2.ultradns.net

    Server: tld2.ultradns.net
    Address: 204.74.113.1#53

    I've tried this a number of times on different days, and I get the

    working for the .org domain?

    At first sight this looks like an IPv6 issue to me.
    Note that tld2.ultradns.net, the only server listed above that works
    for you, is the the only server in the list without an AAAA record.
    I guess that your nslookup tries to query the IPv6 addresses of the
    other servers while your network doesn't support IPv6.

    nslookup -type=ns -norecurse obliqueuniverse.org
    works for me for each you listed above. My nslookup
    uses only IPv4 as I've blacklisted the ipv6 kernel module.

    Regards,

    Kees.

    And it works fine on an IPv6-capable system with real IPv6 connectivity
    too :

    $ nslookup -type=ns -norecurse obliqueuniverse.org tld1.ultradns.net
    Server: tld1.ultradns.net
    Address: 2001:502:d399::1#53

    Non-authoritative answer:
    *** Can't find obliqueuniverse.org: No answer

    Authoritative answers can be found from:
    obliqueuniverse.org nameserver = ns2.dns.rcn.net.
    obliqueuniverse.org nameserver = ns1.dns.rcn.net.
    obliqueuniverse.org nameserver = jupiter.obliqueuniverse.org.
    jupiter.obliqueuniverse.org internet address = 207.237.37.110

    Same with the other servers. Whether the query is recursive or not does
    not seem to make any difference.

    I suggest the host tries with the IPv4 address instead of the server name.

    Yes, they all work!

    How would I configure DNS to query the IPv4 addresses?

    How would I go about configuring my network to support IPv6?


    Thanks for your help, Kees and Pascal!
