Although, kind of weird being a problem on a Universities DNS system.

You obviously haven't worked in or dealt a lot with a University IT department.
Well for the last 10 months I have. I work in the Systems department. Although, not in the DNS side of it. But I've never seen any problems like this before. DNS has its quirks, but for the most part I think it is run pretty well here.

Sounds like one of the better ones then. What do you get back on a dig of the domain? Is it a true timeout or an actual error?

Wasn't getting any response from a ping. An nslookup showed Non-existant response. Today it appears to pick up the DNS settings, but its not letting me through. A dig shows:

Quote;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 1654
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 3, ADDITIONAL: 3

So its looking better, but I don't know why lol. Anyway, I'm not worried about it. Just thought maybe I wasn't the only one having these problems.

Try


dig @207.210.95.105 mirror.pdx.simplemachines.org


That will check against our ns1 directly. Of course, this will only work if you aren't blocked from making external DNS queries.

It appears it can find it, just not reach it.

; <<>> DiG 9.4.2-P1 <<>> @207.210.95.105 mirror.pdx.simplemachines.org

It is possible they are blocking outbound DNS except to their own. You can confirm by checking something like mozilla.org or google.com against 4.2.2.4 (public DNS run by Level3).
