Test Info > Service > Specific DNS

The Specific DNS service is displayed when you choose Specific DNS in the Service pop-up menu in the Test Info pane.

This service attempts to resolve a domain name using a specified DNS server.

Name to lookup: Enter a domain name to look for.

Name server address: Enter a DNS server to use to check for the domain name.

IP Checking: Select Accept any result to treat the test as a success if the DNS server returns any valid IP address, or Result must match to treat it as a failure if the domain resolves to an IP other than the specified one.

Disable recursive queries: If checked, only the specified DNS server is queried; otherwise others are allowed to weigh in too.
