davidwinsemius$ host cran.cnr.Berkeley.edu
cran.cnr.Berkeley.edu is an alias for nature.Berkeley.edu.
nature.Berkeley.edu has address 188.8.131.52
nature.Berkeley.edu has IPv6 address 2607:f140:0:8000::201
nature.Berkeley.edu mail is handled by 5 mx1.ist.Berkeley.edu.
nature.Berkeley.edu mail is handled by 5 mx0.ist.Berkeley.edu.
davidwinsemius$ host cnr.Berkeley.edu
cnr.Berkeley.edu has address 184.108.40.206
When I attempt to open cnr.Berkeley.edu in a browser I get the welcome page from Berkeley's College of Natural Resources ... after redirection to https://nature.berkeley.edu/
When I try trimming the 'cran' from the original link:
I get page not found from https://nature.berkeley.edu/bin/windows/contrib/3.2
So, how do we determine whether Bert's and my DNS servers have changed more recently (since we are both much closer to the Berkeley campus and perhaps Rolf just has an old ip address), or that Rolf has connection to a more uptodate DNS server? As with Bert my network-fu is inadequate to resolve this
