AOL issues!!! (read this even if you don't use AOL)

Postby DarkVader » Wed Aug 13, 2003 11:11 am

For the last few days, KnoxGothic.com has been inaccessable to AOL users. I'm trying to determine what the problem is, but it appears to be on AOL's end, so I'm not holding out much hope of them fixing it any time soon.

I'm hoping to have a workaround for AOL users available soon, though.

Is it possible that a proxy server connection would help?

the problem appears to be that AOL is unable to properly resolve the KnoxGothic.com domain name.

At this point, I'm not sure of the cause, as I have double-checked my setup, and it appears to work properly.

As I don't use AOL, I do not have an ability to test this issue, I have to rely on user reports.

This issue MAY be resolved.

I don't have access to an AOL account to test it, somebody please let me know if it is still a problem.

If you try a reverse DNS lookupon the IP address of the host you get a domain name that does not match. The address ranges are registered to Megapath Networks and AOL may not like the dual identity of the host. This is foolish but we already know that AOL is funny that way.

Looks like you updated the domain on the 13th to solve the problem and force a refresh on the domain. With any luck that should hold it up. I am not sure why AOL DNS serices would drop the host before it's expiration date. Have you tried contacting AOL?

For everyone else, get rid of AOL if at all possible.
