Domain Name Service
There may be broken links in this article, the GROK staff has been notified and is working to resolve the issue.
A Domain Name Server contains information that is part of the Domain Name Service (DNS) distributed database, which makes computer names available to client programs querying for name resolution on the Internet. Domain Name Servers are computers that run a program called BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) which relates decimal internet addresses to names which computer users can easily remember.
The continued growth of the LSU Data Network calls for greater distribution of Domain Name Service. In an effort to make the LSU Data Network more redundant, the Office of Telecommunications has distributed the DNS load among four computers. The table below contains the current campus DNS servers.
Please note that 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 no longer provide DNS function. These two machines, however, continue to serve as WINS servers.
** WINS servers are 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
** DHCP users need not configure DNS information on their computers. The DHCP server will issue the DNS information to the computer dynamically when it issues its TCP/IP address. **
|TCP/IP Address Range
||DNS Servers (listed in order)
|184.108.40.206 through 220.127.116.11
