RE: I've just tried new.net's plugin. Don't.

  • From: Chris Davis
  • Date: Thu Mar 15 10:08:00 2001

I removed the plug-in already, but pinging www.pie.shop went like this:

ping www.pie.shop

std query for www.pie.shop against my name server fails
std query for www.pie.shop.computerjobs.com against my name server failes
wins query for www.pie.shop fails
netbios broadcast for www.pie.shop fails x1
netbios broadcast for www.pie.shop fails x2
netbios broadcast for www.pie.shop fails x3
std query for www.pie.shop against my name server fails
std query for www.pie.shop.computerjobs.com against my name server failes
wins query for www.pie.shop fails
netbios broadcast for www.pie.shop fails x1
netbios broadcast for www.pie.shop fails x2
netbios broadcast for www.pie.shop fails x3
std query for www.pie.shop.newdotnet.net against my name server

newdotnet's NS replied with the IP for www.pie.shop.newdotnet.net & the
echos came back.


I did mean to say in my last posting, everything *non-resolvable* outside
the ICANN TLD's is resolved to 64.208.49.135

Existing new.net TLD domains resolve to whatever their IPs are.

The plug-in, however, sends ANY query outside the ICANN TLDs to
64.208.49.135.
This usurps any and every other imaginable future TLD, ie www.bull.shit
They're not advertising a 'shit' domain (um, literally), and yet requests
for 'shit' go to their NS.

Their scheme, if successful, takes over service for EVERY TLD domain not
already in operation by ICANN.

Who's the monopoly?

What happens when you ping www.pie.shop which is
in a new.net "private" TLD?

That was probably meant to be somewhat meaningfull with names
and not IP numbers.  BTW, do you mean "everything not ending
with an ICANN TLD or "everything not resolvable"? (see above)
