Re: DNS Testing Buttons...Very Weird Results.....

Running Sea Monkey 1.1.10(latest) w/ Sun Java 1.4.2_18 (latest for this OS)Java test sites report Java fully functional. Do Have D-Link wired router Model DI-604 w/ firmware updated & port# 113 re-routed to "nowhere" url. since shows closed rather than stealthed.

I Tried the "test My DNS Button at:
1)https://www.dns-oarc.net/ site has "Test My DNS" button which
cursor over displays as linking to:

BUT when button clicked, OR http://entropy....etc is copy & pasted to browser search line & "go" BOTH Return message below:

4b76e861c0e8ff8db82e6be4.et.dns-oarc.net could not be found. Please check the name and try again.

Using IE 6, dns-oarc.net/ is displayed but "test my dns" button is blacked out but cursor over reveals the entropy.dns-oarc
addie & when clicked gets this response;

"Cannot find server or DNS Error
Internet Explorer ". This May Be Due to Active-X disabling patch applied about 2 months ago (since I never use IE).

2)The http://www.doxpara.com/ site has "test my dns" button but cursor over reveals NO outgoing addie & clicking button
returns error message below:

"7f2383cb3e03.toorrr.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again." Did not attempt using IE at this site.

Browser acts normally visiting other sites including here. Ideas??

In reply to: Sandy

of the active-x's in IE caused that problem. I'm glad my blocks are working.:D

Hope you can test also.

I run the test using FF, Opera and IE7 and I can see the result as vulnerable.
Been using Opendns since this DNS cache poisoning issue 'gone wild' especially the PoC is out---there as per some news.

Hi Sandy,

1. I tried https://www.dns-oarc.net/ with SeaMonkey 1.1.11 and HAD NO problems at all...... could click on the "Test My DNS" button and results:

xxxxx 1. appears to have GREAT source port randomness and GREAT transaction ID randomness.

Test time: 2008-07-27 14:23:38 UTC

2. I can go to http://www.doxpara.com/ with SeaMonkey.. I also see the DNS button...... clicking on it I get nothing...... waiting and I get: "Unresponsive script".

I am having NO problems with the 2 links in FF.

Haven't time at the moment, but could well be SeaMonkey is "blocking" the 2 test?
