NSLOOKUP: Can't Find Server Name for Address 127.0.0.1
This article was previously published under Q172060
When you run Nslookup.exe at a command prompt, you receive the followingerror message after the DNS request times out:
*** Can't find server name for address 127.0.0.1: Timed out
*** Default servers are not available
Default Server: Unknown
You have no DNS server specified in your TCP/IP Properties. If you have noDNS server configured on your client, Nslookup will default to the localloopback address. Other utilities may react similarly.
To resolve this issue, you need to configure a DNS server on your clientby performing the following steps:
- Click the Start button, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click the Network icon.
- Click Protocols, click TCP/IP Protocol, and then click Properties.
- Click DNS, click Add, and then type the IP address of your DNS server.
- Click Add, click OK, and then click OK again.
