DNS server for REVDNS Lookups: This option allows you to define the DNS server to use for REVDNS lookups. If you are running a high volume Alligate server, there will be a LOT of REVDNS lookups. Many users prefer to specify a dedicated or faster DNS server be used for these lookups.

 

Note from the version 3.8.9.1 release: A major issue was discovered with using the default Windows DNS server ( 0.0.0.0 ) or using a Microsoft DNS server as the lookup server for reverse DNS lookups and DNSBL lookups. Using either of these will cause lookups to be pretty much unreliable. We recommend you use a high speed caching DNS service. The Alligate control panel has been modified to disallow 0.0.0.0 and we have provided wizard buttons to easily configure Alligate to use OpenDNS or UltraDNS. Both are free DNS services and have been tested and work very well.
