We have been working on setting up a Tier2 anycast DNS resolver infrastructure for the OpenNIC project and thoroughly testing it. We have recently made this anycast network public and usable by anyone interested, it is at this time however still considered beta, which means the network might - in the worst case - fail to provide DNS. Please use at your own risk!
Are you interested in the public beta test? The following two IP addresses are configured to answer on DNS queries on port 53 and 5353 (with dnscrypt-proxy)
22.214.171.124 / 2a05:dfc7:5::53 (primary - anyone.dnsrec.meo.ws)
126.96.36.199 / 2a05:dfc7:5353::53 (secondary - anytwo.dnsrec.meo.ws)
For this Anycast DNS we're currently having 31 POPs worldwide in service and we're working hard to get more POPs online to make the network even more stable!

Please help us making the network more reliable for everyone! How you can help? It's very simple:
If you're on Linux, OSX or FreeBSD, please run the following command to find out how Anycast decided to route your traffic to us:
dig +short CH TXT version.bind. @188.8.131.52
If you're on Windows, please follow this how-to.
Alternatively, you can also visit https://mtr.sh/cdn-cgi/trace and copy the value of the line prefixed with "hostname=".
Your result should be something similar to
OpenNIC Anycast Tier2 fvz-arec-us-lax-01. If that's not the case, you're not using our Anycast DNS servers. Once you made sure your output looks similar to the one as ours, please drop us a simple email to firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com containing your current physical location (city or, at least, country) and the output of the command and we'll analyze the network routing. We promise that we take every report seriously, we just cannot answer to every single of them due to the high volume of emails we get per day.
All servers have DNSCrypt configured on all its IP addresses and ports 54, 443, 1053, 1194, 5353, 8080 and 27015.
At the very bottom of this list you can also find a dnscrypt-proxy compatible .csv.
In case you don't want to use DNSCrypt but your provider still blocks or intercepts DNS traffic on port 53 only, you can use this iptables rule (for Linux only) to redirect your DNS traffic to another port (replace
$IP with the IP of the server):
iptables -tnat -AOUTPUT -pudp --dport 53 -jDNAT --to $IP:27015
The rule can be extended and customized to randomize ports or even IPs with every single query.
All listed servers have a public account that can be used for peering. Please check cjdns.me for more information about this. If you want to peer with these servers, you are free to do so.
WARNING: This beta-testing feature is experimental and the Hyperboria connection might randomly fail from time to time as we continue to increase the reliability and stability of the entire setup.
Help keep Fusl's OpenNIC Tier2 DNS Servers free!
Running high performance, ad-free DNS Resolvers costs time and money (about € 500,- monthly at this time). The more donations I receive, the more I can provide better DNS servers in more locations for you!
All received donations will be split up: 40% go to all sponsors that accept donations (basically all of them), 35% go to the OpenNIC Project and 25% will be kept by me for paying the other servers, running the infrastructure and such stuff.
Each server has an individual Bitcoin address. If you send money to an individual address, we will make sure that the 40% to the sponsor directly and the rest will also go to OpenNIC and to me.
If you want to send the money via PayPal, please include the server name in the transaction description.
(The received transactions will be collected for a month and at the end of each month forwarded to each sponsor if it's more than 5€ per transaction to the sponsors due to transaction fees.)
