|Query remote nameserver|
How can I query a remote nameserver using nix?
You can use nslookup or you can use dig, I prefer dig, plus nslookup is depricated.
you can use dig at the command line;
dig @hostname-or-ip-of-dns-to-query some-host-name.com
you can also do the reverse (reverse lookup), i.e. provide an IP address and get the hostname;
dig -x @hostname-or-ip-of-dns-to-query 22.214.171.124
