We are running a Peplink One Core with 5 ADSL connections, the DNS forwarding is enabled.
There is an issue with updating Windows Office on our Macs, it just can’t connect to the server. The URL that it tries to find is:
It seems that the url officecdn.microsoft.com can’t be found. If I run a nslookup using the peplink, this is the message:
mac:~ admin1$ nslookup officecdn.microsoft.com ;; Truncated, retrying in TCP mode. ;; communications error to 192.168.0.250#53: end of file
I am not sure what this means, but if I connect directly to the modem (not using the peplink), it gives this response:
MacMini:~ admin11$ nslookup officecdn.microsoft.com Server: 172.16.20.2 Address: 172.16.20.2#53 Non-authoritative answer: officecdn.microsoft.com canonical name = officecdn15.c2r.microsoft.com.akadns.net. officecdn15.c2r.microsoft.com.akadns.net canonical name = officecdn15-worldwide.c2r.microsoft.com.akadns.net. officecdn15-worldwide.c2r.microsoft.com.akadns.net canonical name = 2-01-3f20-0003.cdx.cedexis.net. 2-01-3f20-0003.cdx.cedexis.net canonical name = officecdn-prod.microsoft.com.edgekey.net. officecdn-prod.microsoft.com.edgekey.net canonical name = officecdn-prod.microsoft.com.edgekey.net.globalredir.akadns.net. officecdn-prod.microsoft.com.edgekey.net.globalredir.akadns.net canonical name = e1723.dscd.akamaiedge.net. Name: e1723.dscd.akamaiedge.net Address: 126.96.36.199
This seems to be a very long answer, is there perhaps a limitation on the peplink DNS forwarding? Is it possible that it just can’t forward this above results?
hopefully someone technical can understand this!
