Simon User Guide

New/Edit Test > Service > Specific DNS

This is the Specific DNS service section. This is displayed when you choose Specific DNS in the Service pop-up menu in the New / Edit Test window.

Name to lookup: Enter a domain name to look for.

Name server address: Enter a DNS server to use to check for the domain name.

IP Checking: Select Accept any result to treat the test as a success if the DNS server returns any valid IP address, or Result must match to treat it as a failure if the domain resolves to an IP other than the specified one.

Disable recursive queries: If checked, only the specified DNS server is queried; otherwise others are allowed to weigh in too.
