DirectUpdate pulls DNS Server IP address from Linksys router

Postby mma8108 » Thu Aug 11, 2005 2:02 pm

Use DirectUpdate on a windows xp machine behind a LAN using a linksys router. Now noticing that the DirectUpdate pulls the DNS server addresses from the status page and not the IP address assigned to the router. Any suggestions? I created an exclusion on DirectUpdate for one of the DNS server addresses and now it's grabbing the other DNS server address. Is this bug in linksys or DirectUpdate?

Hello,

Here is a workaround:
- Remove the excluded IP range(s).
- uncheck the URL (to force a remote IP detection)
- once the right IP has been detected, check back the linksys URL.
Now the right IP should be grabbed from the linksys page.

Hope it helps
William
