External Domain Name Services

As of June 2012, systems on Rensselaer's network must use Rensselaer's Domain Name Services (DNS). External domain name services such as OpenDNS or Google's Public DNS will not work. However, DotCIO's remote access servers were granted an exemption, meaning that users can perform direct external DNS testing from one of these specific servers.
