|Subject: DNS CACHING Tue Nov 18, 2008 3:56 pm|| |
when you connect to a web site your computer sends information back and forth, this is obvious.
Some of this information deals with resolving the site name to an IP
address, the stuff that tcp/ip really deals with, not words.
This is DNS information and is used so that you will not need to ask
for the site location each and every time you visit the site.
Although WinXP and win2000 has a pretty efficient DNS cache, you can increase its overall performance by increasing its size.
You can do this with the registry entries below:
***begin copy and paste***
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
***end copy and paste***
make a new text file and rename it to dnscache.reg.
The copy and paste the above into it and save it. Then merge it into the registry.
