I'm not sure how to feel about that. In this case it's good, but imagine if Google started doing that to 8.8.8.8 (and they would definitely do it to 8.8.8.8 and not some alternate address). Google's editorial control over the Internet would be even more enhanced.

You can use it or not. They've got one for parental control and one for parental control + malware.


Maybe there's an interesting service to be had - a comparative DNS system....
Or maybe it's time for caching DNS to die.

Public DNS with parental controls or anti-malware controls are not exactly new. OpenDNS has been offering that for years already.

OpenDNS charges for that service, though. And they provide all sorts of lovely "logs" to the administrator so that you can doxx your users when they stray off the ranch.

I know they have paid plans, but they also had a free tier with parental controls at least. Or they used to have it.

Well I'm back to running my own caching DNS server on my main computer. No third-party anything, straight to the root servers, and I can decide which domains to block.

In other news, CenturyLink borked their BGP, yesterday morning, and broke a significant part of the internet, worldwide, for about 6 hours.

That's ok, they changed their name from CenturyLink to "Lumen".

Now "Lumen" can say they've never had any worldwide outages.

So, for now, I didn't want to disrupt the connection to my BBS while I create a bunch of new records to point directly to the BBS, remove the forwarding records, and disable the DDNS - and I realized that the easy way to start using the new static IP address was to simply replace the DHCP address in my DDNS service with the static one. Not exactly elegant, and probably the kind of thing that would make an actual networking professional want to claw his eyes out, but it should work. 

And it does, for me. 

But I haven't had a single caller to the BBS since I made the change. 

Doing some network investigation using some web based tools, a reverse lookup on the IP address I was assigned shows that it resolves as a mail server. I looked up the whois registry on that domain, and it is a yogurt and yoga company (I dunno... I guess they go together)... and that domain seems to be managed or hosted by the ISP I've purchased the block of IP addresses from as the authoritative DNS for their domain. 

So I suspect a former client that sold yoga and yogurt didn't survive the New York lockdowns - and their records still point the IP address they've assigned me to that client's mail server. 

Can someone check and see if they can resolve to secure.wallofhate.com on https, wallofhate.com on HTTP and telnet.wallofhate.com on Telnet, and let me know here? 


You don't have to log in, just getting to the login prompt is enough. 

I'd appreciate it.

If it isn't reachable, the damage is probably already done, and I might as well pull everything out and set it up right while I wait for the ISP to fix the MX record in their DNS.

secure doesn't resolve. telnet does. And I see you got the very next /29 adjacent to mine :)

They'll set the reverse DNS to whatever you want. Just open a support ticket.

Being that I don't have it set to send Internet mail, reverse DNS shouldn't matter, right? 

Something is hosed on my subnet. There is a a mailserver set up at Ace's DNS as .98... 

I tried popping up to .102 and that killed everything... there is another address in my range that is registered in DNS as someone else... but I tried everything... 

Now I'm back to the .98 address - and nothing is resolving. I guess I'll wait 30 minutes and see if it starts working again. 

And interesting aside... from my own internal machines, I can get it to resolve going out through my ISP and back in through ACE. 
But my phone responds that the site doesn't respond. 

But, I pointed the DYDNS forwarder to the .98 address, and that works from the phone... 

So... something screwy is afoot. 

My BBS can't really afford extended downtime. It is already on life support. :)

Well, I submitted a ticket, then went to bed. Then I woke up and I remembered that when my "networking guy," helped me set everything up, I noticed the gateway was wrong, and he fixed it and told me "remember this command, you may need it if it doesn't stick." So I came down, browsed history, found the command and issued it. Then I checked, and connectivity was back. Not sure if it was back before I issued the command. But the issue with a tracert of my ip address claiming it is mail.iymf.net still persists, so I'm thinking Ace hasn't fixed that yet - and it was just being impatient about waiting for DNS caches to flush and authoritative DNS to push. 

Either way, I seem to be fully back. I can even get there from my phone. Hopefully the handful of "callers," I had have not given up. It was probably a bandaid that needed to be ripped off, in either case.

My site is suddenly running dog slow over the public ACE network. Telnet is working, but the webcit interface is very unresponsive. 

I thought it might be the Pi heating up, and so rebooted it, but the issue persisted. 

Then I connected directly - and that works fine. 

I am getting buffering and quality adjustments watching video over my regular ISP gateway too - which is unusual.

I've noticed it happen a couple of times today here at Uncensored, too. 

Wonder if it is an Internet wide thing, something going on with my local ISP, or something going on with ACE specifically.
