BSNL DataOne’s DNS

with 6 comments

The manual I got asked me to use 61.1.96.69 and 61.1.96.71 as the domain-name servers, but it appears that this is not really optimal. I found other sources, and confirmed by looking at one particular DataOne manual.
Here are the first few lines of my /etc/resolv.conf now:

nameserver 218.248.255.145 #BSNL, primary for South, secondary for North
nameserver 218.248.255.193 #BSNL, primary for North, secondary for South
nameserver 61.1.96.69      #BSNL, primary for East
nameserver 61.1.96.71      #BSNL, secondary for West
nameserver 218.248.255.177 #BSNL, primary for West, secondary for East
nameserver 208.67.222.222  #OpenDNS
nameserver 208.67.220.220  #OpenDNS

The first one is really faster slightly (about 63 ms instead of 79 ms, or so), but I doubt if it matters…

[Update, asked in the comments: use this on Windows.]

  4. It’s possible that such is the case lately, but when I last checked, openDNS really *was* perceptibly slower than BSNL’s servers.

    • Those are in China; it’s surprising they should be faster. :-) But it may be true… (I’m not using BSNL right now.)
