Google nosslsearch CNAME entry

Does anyone have an entry setup in DNS (I'm running NAMED on NetWare 6.5 SP8) for nosslsearch.google.com? support.google.com/.../answer.py

  • I worked around this by just adding a new zone for Google and setting the A record to the nosslsearch.google.com IP address (216.239.32.20). If the IP address changes I'll need to update it, but for now this works and I can block the SSL Google searches, which is how kids were bypassing the SafeSearch restrictions.

    edit: I just realized that instead of an A record with the IP address, I could just add a CNAME record to nosslsearch.google.com and that would resolve the issue, regardless of whether or not Google changed their IP address. I did that (it deleted my A record since you can only have one or the other), and searches in Google were all still redirected to non-SSL Google, and SafeSearch is always on. Perfect!
  • I am not having an luck accomplishing this. Would it be possible for you or someone else to post a more step by step method. I am having an issue with creating the zone.
  • Sorry, I just saw your post. Did you get this yet? Do you still need help? if so, I can help with a Windows Server 2012 DNS server, let me know if that's what you have and need instructions.

    I am trying to do this same thing as well, but I don't think it's actually working. In my YAST dns settings, I have my reverse lookup and internal domain zones up and running. That all works fine. I then create a zone called google.com. In the google zone, I made a CNAME entry pointing www to nosslsearch. When I run nslookup for google.com, nothing changes and I get the non-authoritative reply of public IP addresses. Maybe I need clear the servers DNS cache and flush the DNS on the workstations before it will update?

    Also, Will the rest of the google domains still use the external DNS forwarders for the rest of Google's sub domains such as images, drive, mail, etc?
