DNS servers are used to translate user-friendly domain names (such as www.ksu.edu or www.k-state.edu) into numeric IP addresses (such as 126.96.36.199) in order to make a network connection to the remote service or host. Since it is the DNS servers that provide this service, you must configure your system with the numeric IP addresses of the DNS servers. This is not usually necessary for other services such as SMTP or POP.
The K-State DNS servers are located on a dedicated network that is directly connected to the network backbone.
The K-State DNS servers are for use by anyone on the K-State network.
Note: For security and performance reasons, the K-State DNS servers are configured to deny service to clients outside the K-State network.
|DNS server||IP address|
Note: These servers should be listed in a random order in your network-connection software to help distribute the load as seen in the example below.
