DNS error back again [update: We're good to go again]

Posted on 04/15/2016 12:26:19 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Sorry, folks. Looks like the DNS error problem is back. Thought we had the out-dated record business all straightened out with the registry people, but I see they put us on hold again this morning. Hope John gets it all straightened out for good this time... and soon.

Thanks Jim. I lost FR a couple of times this afternoon. I had to use the IP address to get here.

I’m OKay here.
Just checking.
I need to run an errand.
I was waiting for the new thread but maybe I should try to go to the Post Office now.
Decisions, decisions.
I’ll think about it.

Edit your hosts file and you will never have DNS issues with FR.

Add these entries:
209.157.64.200 freerepublic.com
209.157.64.200 www.freerepublic.com

(Tab between the IP and hostname is best practice)

For windows mac and linux Users: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/27350/beginner-geek-how-to-edit-your-hosts-file/

For IOS unjail breaked:
Use Weblock - AdBlock for iOS app to create a redirect rule from http://app to the IP and port you like. ie, 209.157.64.200 <- freerepublic.com
209.157.64.200 <- www.freerepublic.com
(Only works when on a WIFI network)

Msg me if you are jail breaked and cant figure it out. After making fun of you I will help. ;-P

I had to change the bookmark to the former to use Brave, but but FF worked normally with the bookmarked latter.

I’m not going to say anything because last time I jinxed myself by saying everything was ok.

Thanks, Jim. I was out for a while after taking the dogs for a walk, but I just got back in again.

At this point, what does it matter!

I've been without internet and phone for the past two weeks. Verizon becoming Frontier Communication has been a boon...for Brighthouse!

Thank you for trying to keep us upright and rolling at FR.

Sorry for anyone experiencing the DNS trouble. I nearly went mad (no comments please) the first time, being down for a day! Hang in there, dear friends.

John always comes to the rescue.

FREEPATHON FOR JOHN!!

Pull out your crispiest dollar for JOHN!!!! Whoo Hoo!
