Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

www.superyoink.de is my clients' website. I can access it from any machine except my development one.

If I ping it on my development machine, I get 80.67.28.107 - this is wrong.

My laptop, next to me, is able to resolve it correctly.

I have tried putting correct address into hosts like so:

93.187.232.191 www.superyoink.de

Still resolves to wrong address.

I can enter bogus DNS server addresses so nothing works. But www.superyoink.de still resolves to 80.67.28.107.

Rebooted, did ipconfig /flushdns nothing seems to work.

I run 32 bit Vista. My impression is that it has stored the wrong dns resolution somewhere and is not even trying the DNS servers. But where? Help please!

Update: Use process monitor. Filter for ping.exe (after a ipconfig /flushdns). Search the output for clause.

Before update:Put other address in your host file. To make sure that you are viewing the correct file.

124.23.2.3 akjsdf.com

and ping it.

You nailed it - when I searched for hosts, Vista showed a backup file in an indexed location. The active file had wrong address written in. Thanks!! –  Patrick Jun 23 '09 at 9:23

if you run a nslookup what do you get?

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC>nslookup contoso.com
Server:  scant2.cannla.local
Address:  192.168.1.20

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    contoso.com
Addresses:  207.46.232.182
          207.46.197.32

what if you run nslookup with an alternative dns server?

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC>nslookup contoso.com 203.109.252.42
Server:  tig-nz-akl-ns-42.ihug.net
Address:  203.109.252.42

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    contoso.com
Addresses:  207.46.232.182
          207.46.197.32

that should help find the answer
