Currently the local DNS is setup to use the InterNic Root(hints) to discover Internet DNS requests. I wanted to ask what are the advantages/disadvantages of using RootHints against DNS Forwarders. What do you prefer – Sending requests to the InterNIC servers or the ISP servers? Thanks. Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
