Serv-U and DNS4Me Show Different IP Addresses When Using Dynamic DNS  -  KB Article #1637

Related Articles -- 1593, 1242

In some cases, Serv-U's dynamic DNS tab and DNS4Me will show different values for an IP address. This discrepancy is due to the DNS servers configured under the Windows TCP/IP settings not returning a "current' value for your domain name. These servers are not complying with DNS standards. Select another set of DNS servers under your TCP/IP properties in Windows.

Contact your ISP (or whoever hosts the DNS servers you currently use) to get a more accurate local set of DNS servers and to let them know their DNS servers are not complying with DNS standards.

There are publicly available DNS servers which should have current and accurate DNS information.

This Microsoft Knowledge Base article explains how to add DNS servers to your TCP/IP properties.
