    Thanks for the vote.

    Just a note... Some people may be thinking I don't see an option D over at Norton and neither do I. The FAQ also says:
    But if you sign in at https://manage.nortondns.com/ and set your DNS servers to 198.153.192.1 and 198.153.194.1 you can set up custom rules so maybe this is something they are working on.

    I think it's the old norton dns. I think it's not something they abandoned and upgraded to 198.153.192.60 and 198.153.194.60

    Thanks for the info. I have to admit I have been using the 198.153.192.1 and 198.153.194.1 servers to test out Norton DNS. I normally use DynDNS.. If I have any problems with Norton I now have an idea where to look first. :shifty:

    I could not vote mutilple choice as each system is set up different through the computers and not the router.

    My system setup is option A and with the kids system is option C.

    I also use OpenDNS on a Mac because NortonDNS does not support Mountain Lion 10.8.2
