Testing DNS and WWW from ADSL router

Unanswered Question
Mar 6th, 2007

Hi,

Is there a way to test DNS and WWW from the 800 series ADSL router using the BV interface as your source?

Am I right in saying that what ever I test using the BV as the source would be the same as testing it as if I had a PC on the router and the router using NAT?

I have this problem too.

You can test connectivity by doing:

ping x.x.x.x source BVI1

Assuming that you have a dns server set on the router, you could do the following:

ping www.google.com source BVI1 - Test DNS

telnet www.google.com 80 /source-interface BVI1 - Test WWW/DNS

The telnet will not give you much of anything, but it'll make a connection or not. You should also be able to look at your NAT translations to verify if that BVI1 ip address was properly translated.

Good luck.

Thanks,

I did that already when i configured the router. Was wondering if there was another way to do this.

Would the test be the same as doing it from the PC on the network?
