A web page has been set up to provide automated testing of DNS servers. The results of this test rely on your server responding to public queries.
Visit [[http://opennic.oss/test/]] and enter your IP or hostname, then select the type of server you have.
The code used for validating server operation is also used to run automated daily status checks. Every 3 hours, most tests are performed on all publicly listed tier2 servers. Once every 12 hours, the results are sent to the [[http://lists.darkdna.net/mailman/listinfo/dns-reports reports mailing list]]. The results of these tests affect the active status of the servers listed on [[http://www.opennicproject.org/publictier2servers]] and will cause the dns.opennic.glue zone to be regenerated. If your server is marked as 'temp outage' and you believe this is in error, please contact Shdwdrgn on IRC to manually verify your server's accessibility.
Another minimal status test is performed on servers every 10 minutes, [[http://opennic.oss/index.php?src=test/t2.html with the results shown here]]. Keep in mind that this test only check for very basic functionality, so it is possible for a server to appear to be working normally on this page, while it fails the full testing and is listed as 'temp outage' on [[http://www.opennicproject.org/publictier2servers]].
