This thread has been deleted from my Leafnode server, but the Leafnode
link took me straight to it on Google Groups!
I have a favorite site that I cannot access via my ISP's primary DNS
server address. I CAN access it via the secondary DNS server. Rather
than reconfigure and hunt up the second address every time I upgrade, I
have set the DNS addresses in my router, which stands between an ADSL
modem in bridge mode and my (and my wife's) computer.
Should I change my computer settings? The old settings: "use DHCP" etc
still work, except that my BitTorrent port now shows Closed all the
time. Previously I had port forwarding in the router, and it is still
there. Should I perhaps be telling my interface that its DNS server is
the router, or similar? Or should I put it back how it was originally?
Anyway, Cork Soaker, perhaps it should not make a scrap of difference,
moving the DNS addresses to the router, but it did. As soon as I
changed the router setting to DHCP, the BT ports opened up.
Perhaps some peculiarity of the router (D-Link WGR614 v. 6)?
Why not just bookmark it by it's IP address, rather than name?
navigating the site, because menus and links on the start page sent me back
to the DNS server.
Anyway, I can just keep a record of the two numbers.
