DNS IPs List

ScoutDNS operates a global anycast network for resiliency and performance. All resolver IP addresses can be found within the application under the Help Icon > IPs list


ScoutDNS maintains a closed/private resolver network for security and performance. This means our resolvers will not answer any queries for unregistered networks.




Here we maintain a list of Primary and Secondary anycast IPs as well as direct access IPv6 for our locations when a customer requires these.
