Edit dns entry.

By gregori65 ·
When I type ipconfig/displaydns, I see a wrong IP address to a site I want to access to. I also try use ipconfig/flushdns to remove the entries luck. Questions: Where are those entries coming from? How can I input and edit them manually?
Thanks for your help!!!

If you have flushed your dns, the records are coming from a DNS Server somewhere. If you have local dns servers that you use, try flushing the cache on your dns server. You can also use nslookup to test dns servers and see what ip you get. You could also go to and do a whois for the domain. You can then get their DNS Server off the list. After that:

go into command line an type:

nslookup <enter>
server "Name of the DNS server from netsol w/o quotes" <enter>
type in name you are trying to test <enter>
See if the ip is correct. If correct, you have a problem with a cache somewhere, if it is incorrect, the site you are trying to access is having a problem.

Thanks for your replaying!
Yes, I use a local DNS server and I can see it has lots of DNS entries on the cache location. Is there a way I can only remove the entry with the wrong IP without refreshing all the entries in the local DNS? Thanks for your help.
