Service Description

Network Engineering manages the Domain Name System for Southern Illinois University.  DNS coverts textual names such as "siu.edu" into IP addresses and vice versa.  

Below is the list of DNS servers to be used on the SIU campus:

  • 131.230.2.50
  • 131.230.9.112
  • 131.230.2.1
  • 131.230.252.1

Network Engineering also maintains the DNS records. All requests, and changes must be registered with Network-Engineering. Adherence to the preceding conditions helps to avoid conflicts and other connectivity problems for campus users.
