Not working on ACT Fibernet


ACT is leading fibernet internet providing company in India. I followed the DNS setup with the following credentials
But still its not working. I have attached the debug information. Please check :slight_smile:


What is the output of these commands?

nslookup www.sitemeer.com

nslookup www.sitemeer.com


This is the output.

While running: nslookup www.sitemeer.com

You seem to reach the servers just fine. From the output it would then appear that you simply havent configured it properly on your machine. Go through the setup steps mentioned at


i’m pretty sure that i have configured it properly. I have also attached the picture for your reference.

Also, In my previous ISP provider(BSNL) it was working cool. Its not working, only in ACT Fibernet. Thanks.



Well, as you can see from the output the connection works just fine and you reach the servers. So it must be something else on your machine then.


Probably are they blocked from act fibernet? Can i get any help on this? Because i rechecked. The DNS is working great in other ISP(BSNL, JIO).


Again, you reach the servers just fine so they cannot be blocked.


So how to check, like i have the perfect connection setup?


You need to check why your configuration apparently ignores the settings. That might be a good question for something like Stackexchange or a similar community.


Hm. :thinking:
I’d expect to see a peering or transit network in this traceroute.
According to peeringDB they have three private peerings , Bharti Airtel, Sify Rabale and Tata Communications.
No public.


Are you suggesting the ISP hijacked the address and redirects it to its own nameserver?

But even if this were the case, DNS resolution should still work, as it obviously works as we can deduce from the screenshots.


It looks suspcious to me. Nothing more. :slightly_smiling_face:
The other strange thing is that shows the Google AS

@anburocky would you mind posting the output of ipconfig /all ?


The trace does, but it still resolves. Who is resolving here might be a different question :slight_smile:

I understand this is because the settings are not effective and the system resolver is not Cloudflare.


Yep, for whatever the reason is.


Wrong settings :man_shrugging:t2: :slight_smile:
