Re: [ga] RE: [ga] FW: Eeek - .NU Domains using , , , , - And More




Actually, it turned out today that the Nunames solution doesn't work with
none of the larger Swedish ISPs. The solution will only work under very
special circumstances, based on the installation at the end user. On the
Swedish discussion list Domains (disclaimer: Domains is managed by me)
some of the largest Swedish operators are truly irritated by the works of
Nunames in this matter.
