Dreamcast Pi Suddenly Unable to Resolve DNS

Post#1 » Tue Feb 25, 2020 6:34 pm

I suddenly and unexpectedly became unable to connect by Dreamcast to my Raspberry Pi that I'm using the dreamcastlive software on. I can connect to the Pi over local SSH just fine however. I'm not too knowledgeable about networking, but I did some looking into, and I'm *pretty* sure the Dreamcast Live distro is supposed to be able to ping google.com :lol: it can properly ping the google ip address however, so it appears (from what I'm reading online) to be an issue with DNS name resolution. However, I am unable to find a fix for my problem even now that I kind of know what's wrong.

The Dreampi DNS appears to be down today. After troubleshooting this for a couple hours I found I wasn't the only one with issues. Pretty annoying TBH.

Yeah Kazade's DNS appears to be down. Since he's in the UK and it's after midnight there, he probably won't be able to fix it until tomorrow.

Wish I would have known this after troubleshooting for 2 hours, reflashing my pi, corrupting my PSO save in the process of trying to connect.

I don't see any problems? I just logged in and restarted the DNS service just in case, but it's working fine here:

Code: Select all

$ nslookup google.com 46.101.91.123
Server:      46.101.91.123
Address:   46.101.91.123#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   google.com
Address: 216.58.211.174
Name:   google.com
Address: 2a00:1450:4001:818::200e

It was down for everyone all day, pcwzrd said it was possible to use the dc talk IP in /etc/dnsmasq.conf so I did that and connected.

I just edited back to your server and it seems to be working fine though! I just tried and logged into PSO. Thanks!
