Every network admin has at one time or another run into a DNS issue that is difficult to pin point where the problem is. Well www.dnsstuff.com is the place to go to try and solve your DNS issues. I have used them for over a year now and it has greatly enhanced my troubleshoot skills by offering me a great set of tools and reports to trouble shoot DNS and mail server issues. Here are just a few of their may tools:
DNSreport runs a series 55 tests against your domain and returns a status of pass, warning or failure for each test result. The six test categories include:
  • Parent tests
  • Name server tests
  • Start of authority (SOA) tests
  • Mail exchanger (MX) tests
  • Mail tests
  • www tests
Other features:
  • DNS troubleshooting, management and monitoring
  • Network Administration and Troubleshooting
  • Email troubleshooting and diagnostics
  • Internet/Cybercrime forensics
  • Spam Combat
  • Insight into an IP address
  • Internet configuration, connectivity and performance
