TREX is making two IPv4 resolvers and two IPv6 resolvers available to Finnish end users. Resolvers are recursive DNS servers used by web browsers and other programs to map hostnames to numeric addresses and vice versa.
Windows users can manually configure name servers from the network settings window and add the below addresses into the list. If you are using some other operating system and you are having problems with your current name servers, try adding these lines into your /etc/resolv.conf:
nameserver 2001:67c:2b0::1 nameserver 2001:67c:2b0::2 nameserver 126.96.36.199 nameserver 188.8.131.52
There are several aliases for the resolvers to help remember their addresses:
dns.trex.fi. IN A 184.108.40.206 IN A 220.127.116.11 IN AAAA 2001:67c:2b0::1 IN AAAA 2001:67c:2b0::2
One of the recursors is running Unbound and the other recursor is running Bind 9. Both recursors support EDNS and large query sizes as well as TCP connections. They also support DNSSEC and will validate responses if the query flags so specify.
Acceptable Usage Policy
The servers are made available as is. Their main intended userbase is Finland. We reserve the right to deny this service if we uncover abuse or malicious activities. The maximum acceptable rate of queries to the recursive name servers from a single network is one hundred queries per second or 100q/s. If you have any problems with this service, please contact our hostmaster. The email address conforms to RFC2142.
