ISP blocking Pokecheck DNS?
« on: September 26, 2013, 07:54:38 pm »
I'll try to explain this in the least confusing way possible.

I'm using my Mac's ethernet connection, and sharing it as Wifi for my DS. I can connect to the normal GTS fine. But I'm trying to connect to Pokecheck. So I change the settings, don't auto detect DNS and put in the DNS on the top of their page. When I test the connection I can get a good 3 seconds of 3 bars/green connection, but then it goes red. I'm assuming my university has Pokecheck's DNS blocked? I don't understand and I really want to try to get around it. I'm surprised they have it blocked or know what it is. I tried running a script on my Mac that tells me if my ISP is blocking it, but it didn't work.

Help?

The script they gave was specific to Windows, however it does have one universal component.  Open the Mac OS X terminal and input:

Code: [Select]
nslookup gamestats2.gs.nintendowifi.net 87.98.141.99
Your results should be similar to this if alternate DNSs are not blocked:

Server:  root.pokecheck.org
Address:  87.98.141.99

Name:    gamestats2.gs.nintendowifi.net
Address:  87.98.141.99

If your ISP is blocking alternate DNSs, your results will be something like this:

Server:  (University ISP)
Address:  X.X.X.X

Name:    gamestats2.gs.nintendowifi.net
Address:  69.10.30.234

Or it could spit out an error for not being able to contact the DNS server.

I'll try this out and get back to you. Thanks!
