Background There is a great deal of literature about the operation of authoritative nameservers, but not so much about the resolver function.This note is for system and network managers or administrators in Janet organisations (particularly smaller organisations with relatively simple networks) and is intended to give them confidence that they have correctly configured this straighforward but critical part of the DNS in their own networks.

All Janet services are governed by the Janet policies. Janet recommends that each Janet organisation should have at least one resolver locally in its own campus network unless some good reason makes that impracticable. If a client computer cannot contact a resolver then it will in practice be cut off from the Internet and possibly from other computers in the same network.

All Janet services are governed by the Janet policies. What is a primary nameserver? A nameserver is a computer that is used to convert names into numeric addresses and vice versa.
