I had been using OpenDNS for a long time. But a while back I switched to 188.8.131.52 for a test. I wanted to reevaluate our options and maybe switch back to OpenDNS so I logged into our portal. Much to my surprise, I found:
- DNS-O-Matic wasn't working for any of the 3 Services I had configured. One can no longer authenticate, one just says, "UNKNOWN" status whatever that means and the third was using a very old IP address (probably because we have not been running any DDNS to update for a while.
- And yet, the dashboard has all kinds of data on it. So I wonder... how can that be if the IP wasn't ours? Are we seeing some one else's data ? Since one only has to verify the IP when you set it up I could see how that would happen.
- The Mac DDNS client no longer works because of Apple's new restrictions. Will there be a new version?
I have to say it is creepy to either be seeing other people's DNS or that OpenDNS has our data somehow even though we have been using a different DNS provider.
