What are the campus domain name servers (DNS)?

  • ITS Manning – Load Balanced DNS: 152.19.240.8 (fasterpass.its.unc.edu) Preferred
  • ITS Phillips: 152.2.21.1 (ns.unc.edu)
  • ITS Franklin: 152.2.253.100 (ns2.unc.edu)

We recommend that you use DNS servers from at least two different buildings for redundancy and resiliency.

Note: If you choose to point to off-campus DNS servers, please be advised that for specific areas of the network (such as ResNET and campus wireless) DNS traffic is blocked to all except a small number of off-campus DNS resources in order to prevent malicious redirection of network traffic. The resources to which off-campus DNS queries are permitted are:

208.67.222.222,OpenDNS

4.2.2.2,Level3
