I need to know the addresses and ports of the Ubuntu DNS servers. How can I do this from the command line?

Command-line: $ cat /etc/resolv.conf

DNS servers listen by convention on port 53 TCP or UDP; UDP is used for most requests.

Command-Line:

nm-tool | grep DNS

If you mean your local dns servers:

cat /etc/resolv.conf

and for information as to what port a general service runs on you can grep /etc/services for dns

If you mean the ubuntu DNS servers for the domain just use nslookup
