Can not access some OpenNIC TLDs (and some peers)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I understand that AirVPN is using OpenNIC as its DNS, however, I can not access some OpenNIC TLDs, for example:

http://www.opennic.chan

http://be.libre

http://register.neo

http://opennic.oz

http://reg.dyn

http://register.gopher

 

What works:

http://www.nic.fur (FurNIC which OpenNIC peers with)

http://opennic.glue

http://register.bbs

http://opennic.free -- .free being phased out; it's new version is .libre which is not accessible from AirVPN

http://opennic.geek

http://www.parody

http://reg.oss

 

* If I shutdown AirVPN, I can access all the TLDs including those that OpenNIC peers with.

* I have to add OpenNIC's tier 2 DNS in Eddie > DNS setting to access all OpenNIC TLD (and peers) via AirVPN

 

Is this a bug?

You can check the routes page, as of now all the addresses resolve correctly, some are a little slow (1-2sec) but that depends on the OpenNIC servers. Might been some upstream DNS issue.

Hi,

 

I understand that AirVPN is using OpenNIC as its DNS, however, I can not access some OpenNIC TLDs, for example:

 

 

Hello,

 

we use our own DNS servers, not OpenNIC ones. Our DNS servers resolve names in ICANN, OpenNIC and NameCoin name spaces. If an authoritative DNS is slow to respond to our servers, there's not much we can do (we could evaluate some more caching or things like that, but not something really resolutive).

 

Kind regards

Thank you. Tested now, all servers showing opennic.glue and opennic.free as "fail" in HTTP. I did not try the other TLDs I listed above. But when I shutdown Eddie, I can connect to those TLDs fine.

I see, thank you. Is there a way to combine the DNS, a fallback?

 

In Eddie, there is an option to "Check AirVPN DNS", correct me if I'm wrong, does it mean queries I first checked against the AirVPN DNS and if it fails, it will use the DNS I have listed in Eddie?

 

Thank you.
