Ref to my original post.
At the time of your original post, the front page news hadn't appeared, so I doubt that you knew why the machine using public DNS was having problems.

Those "Results received in last hour" numbers look bad.
So....someone sees Smoke on some distant mountain, flips the breaker to the DNS Server, and then scurries off to their Safe space?
The last time this happened someone posted the DNS numbers and all was well, it's still fine here.

208.68.240.119 boinc2.ssl.berkeley.edu
208.68.240.126 setiboinc.ssl.berkeley.edu

Works for me.

Dunno how I missed this the first time through, but thanks to Grant. Sigh. Totally missed the context on that one ...
Now of course, once they get the DNS server working again and change their server addresses some months down the road, I'll be scratching my ... head ... wondering why I can't connect.
And considering my hosts file is ~600k (almost the limit) to filter out all the crapware sites ....

Tnx for this...worked for me too. Lovely to get rid of all those uploads in progress and finally DL some new tasks. I got 128 in one fell swoop...perfect :-) Though my Webroot AV had a thing or two to say about it, haha...

I was able to open the file -- but where do I make these changes in the file!

Copy the hosts file to your desktop. Then start Notepad as administrator, open the saved file and make your changes. Save the file. Delete the original host file, and put the edited file there instead. (For Win7)

Does anyone have the IP address for the messages/email system(s)?

I would like to add it to my host file.

Thank you,
Tom

Might also need to use: ipconfig /flushdns for windows.

Nothing corrupted in there - it'll just be empty (timed out)

More useful to use

ipconfig /displaydns
and note what's in your cache while it's working - that'll give you the ip address for this website (setiathome.berkeley.edu) as you were asking.

Looks like the DNS server is back on the job.

I'm still having issues getting all my uploads to get to the servers. Always a dozen or so in timing backoff and retry. Guess the upload server is getting overloaded.

I'm wondering how all my computers keep getting the SETI servers hosts entries commented out. They can't connect in that state. Unless I notice the building uploads or the messages that no work can be retrieved because of pending uploads, I wouldn't have known to go check the hosts file again. I don't know whether it is Windows doing the deed of some antivirus program. I have Kaspersky on the Win7 machines and using Defender on the Win10 machine. Two different AV programs makes it unlikely that they both are doing the same thing. Unless Windows directs them to do that.

My router allows me to add DNS entries. Then I have the DHCP server pass out the router address for DNS to my machines. That way I don't have to update host files for all of my machines.

That could be a more convenient way for others as well.

Eric has just posted an update - it would appear that the backup DNS server is suffering the same malady - being blamed on building-level power supply issues :-(

You know, that is a very good suggestion and more elegant than editing Hosts. I think my router can do the same and it is my DNS server for my computers.

No more Arecibo tasks to split/splat/splut.
I wonder if it is for good, or just temporary?

The only disadvantage I have found is not being able to enter both addressed for the download servers.

I was mistaken. My router does not let me enter the DNS entries for specific websites. Just the two DNS server entries for normal lookup.

I believe it's
208.68.240.110 setiathome.berkeley.edu
At least, that's what I just added to my hosts after a /displaydns lookup.
