    Default Your help needed: Please ping www.Google.co.za

    I have fooled my system to permanently use the local servers for all searching (modify your hosts file)
    c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts >>open with notepad and add the following lines to it, as this will change your DNS lookups to perma use local, Note however that the results will be returned, but if you do not have Int bandwidth some pages will not open

    Thanks for the feedback so far - looks like all IS clients access Google.com/Google.co.za locally while others are still routed internationally.

    It depends on the DNS server that you're using.

    I've forced the following hostnames to the local IP address on my MikroTik RB750:

    www.l.google.com
    www.google.com
    mail.google.com
    chatenabled.mail.google.com

    Now I can access Gmail on local cap

    The 168.210.2.2 (IS DNS server) reports the local Google IP for www.google.co.za!

    Our office is running on MWeb Business uncapped and it reported the international IP address, so we overrided the DNS entries on our router at the office too.

    I see something very strange with some our DNS servers reporting the following:

    Code:
    ;; QUESTION SECTION:
    ;www.google.co.za.		IN	A
    
    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    www.google.co.za.	14201	IN	CNAME	www.google.com.
    www.google.com.		307210	IN	CNAME	www.l.google.com.
    www.l.google.com.	8	IN	A	64.233.179.104
    Note, I left out the DNS server in question on purpose.
