Google’s 8.8.8.8 resolves ok while 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 do not.

I had to switch to 8.8.8.8 since it keeps not resolving.

dig +short CHAOS TXT id.server @1.0.0.1 or @1.1.1.1 reports PRG

reports nothing (no output).

The problem persists. Should I supply some other information in order to help debugging?

Hi @zbynek.winkler,

Thanks for the report, I can reproduce. It seems an issue between our colo and upstream auth servers. We’ll try to figure it out.

It is resolving now.
