Introduction 2 Recall, a Domain Name System (DNS) translates hostnames to IP addresses, fulfilling a critical role in the Internet infrastructure. In this lab, we’ll take a closer look at the client side of DNS. Recall that the client’s role in the DNS is relatively simple – a client sends a query to its local DNS server, and receives a response back. As shown in Figures 2.21 and 2.22 in the textbook, much can go on “under the covers,” invisible to the DNS clients, as the hierarchical DNS servers communicate with each other to either recursively or iteratively resolve the client’s DNS query. From the DNS client’s standpoint, however, the protocol is quite simple – a query is formulated to the local DNS server and a response is received from that server. Before beginning this lab, you’ll probably want to review DNS by reading Section 2.5 of the text. In particular, you may want to review the material on local DNS servers , DNS caching , DNS records and messages , and the TYPE field in the DNS record.
