    PROJECT TERMINATED DUE TO ABUSE.


    Hi, over the past few weeks I've seen a growing interest in a DNS server that end-users can configure their consoles to use, so that they will no longer be able to communicate with NUS.

    I took the addresses listed over on the first post of the "Wii U Hacking Discussion" thread, did a reverse lookup on them to find out what their DNS names were, and found that they belonged to Akamai Technologies. There was also another host listed as 'account.nintendo.net' which I have also blocked. Feel free to test and point out any deficiencies.

    DNS Server IP: 54.68.74.226

    Code:
    [root@ns1 ~]# nslookup account.nintendo.net 54.68.74.226
    Server:        54.68.74.226
    Address:    54.68.74.226#53
     
    ** server can't find account.nintendo.net: NXDOMAIN
     
    [root@ns1 ~]# nslookup a96-17-161-145.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com. 54.68.74.226
    Server:        54.68.74.226
    Address:    54.68.74.226#53
     
    ** server can't find a96-17-161-145.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com.: NXDOMAIN
     
    [root@ns1 ~]# nslookup a184-50-229-158.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com. 54.68.74.226
    Server:        54.68.74.226
    Address:    54.68.74.226#53
     
    ** server can't find a184-50-229-158.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com.: NXDOMAIN
     
    [root@ns1 ~]# nslookup a184-50-227-137.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com. 54.68.74.226
    Server:        54.68.74.226
    Address:    54.68.74.226#53
     
    ** server can't find a184-50-227-137.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com.: NXDOMAIN
    
    Edit: I also see the following URL's being passed through my DNS server, in case anyone is curious:

    Code:
    (a184-50-227-137.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com):
    (a184-50-229-158.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com):

    So this is an online server we can connect to via a proxy in the Wii U internet settings? Or do we still need to configure this ourselves?

    In the WiiU Internet settings, use the IP in the OP as the DNS server.

    This goes in both primary and secondary manual DNS settings?
    Also, does this block every connection to anything Nintendo or can you still visit the eShop and get game updates?

    The intention is to block everything nintendo, while still allowing you to keep the core internet functions of your console, such as the web browser.

    Thanks, I'm kinda new when it comes to tampering with connections. So I input that as both, primary and secondary DNS?

    Put it in the primary, you shouldn't have to put a 2nd, but if it makes you, try entering the same IP twice. If it won't let you put the same on twice, use a bogus IP like 172.16.126.111

    So I enter the internet setting and then go to the DNS settings then enter the IP address...? Sorry, I really suck at networking, I don't know what the hell I'm doing. Anyone got any screenshots?

    This is good. Maybe now there won't be a million redundant questions. on how to do this. People working towards a common goal is what makes a good scene.
