DNS

Name server aT TU Dresden

The following hosts are name servers for the domain tu-dresden.de:

Primary Server:
141 . 30 . 66 . 135

Secondary Server:
141 . 30 . 66 . 1

Domain Name Service (DNS, BIND)

'The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the internet or a private network' (Wikipedia). A domein name consists of different sub names (sub domains), which are separated by a dot.

The ZIH manages the domain tu-dresden.de for the campus network.

The following contact persons are available via zih-dns@groups.tu-dresden.de:
Hostmaster: Andreas Weigand 
Proxy: Christoph Fleck, Christine Kuhlmey
Head of Department: Wolfgang W√ľnsch

Questions are preferably asked to zih-dns@groups.tu-dresden.de.

The particular connection modalities for computer in this domain have to be clarified with the responsible ZIH stuff members. A smooth net workflow is only guaranteed, if every net user abides by the ZIH-guidelines.

IT IS PROHIBITED TO USE INTERNET ADDRESSES AND COMPUTER NAMES WHICH ARE NOT CONFORM TO THE CAMPUS NET CONVENTIONS! INFRINGMENTS LEAD TO EXCLUSION FROM THIS NET! 

The DNS provides a distinct mapping between 'full qualified host names' and the particular IP-addresses in point notation. The TU Dresden runs a name server with the following agreement:
141 . 30 . x . y . : core campus address space
141 . 76 . x . y . : address space of the faculty of computer science and other institutions of TU Dresden
tu-dresden.de : domain name  of TU Dresden
an arbitrary host at TU Dresden therefor has a worldwide unique name: host.fac.tu-dresden.de

In this context the following agreements should be considered:
host : host name (naming convention! have a look at the last paragraph)
fak : faculty (i.g. et, mw, inf, dez)
examples for 'full qualified hostnames' are:
WPRO00.wiwi.tu-dresden.de      W stands for faculty economic sciences (ger.: Wirtschaftwissenschaften), PRO stands for institute of production management.
EATFSMAIL.et.tu-dresden.de    E: fac. of electrical engineering, AT: inst. of automat. technology, FSMAIL: mail server.

As a specification during the granting of host names, the name and domain concept has to be uniform within the whole university. The hostnames are given in coordination with the ZIH. The user is able to check with a tool ('nslookup' or 'dig'[public domain software]) whether or not a name could be mapped to a IP address as well as search for names.
