India's Largest Mall on Mobile---ngpay.

What is ngpay?

ngpay is India's largest mall - located entirely on a user's mobile handset.

You can use ngpay to buy air & rail tickets, bank, pay your bills, buy movie tickets, shop for books & gifts, transfer funds, make payments and more from your mobile phone in a fast, simple and secure fashion. Its free and takes just minutes to download and register.

ngpay offers a range of services from its network of partners. In a simple, consolidated menu, you can discover and choose merchants, banks, or service providers with whom you want to transact.

ngpay will continue to tie up with more Partners to meet your everyday needs. For your convenience, the updated list of Partners will be always available to you on ngpay on your mobile phone. You are also encouraged to recommend a Partner from the "Contact Us" page of our website
Shop, Buy Tickets, Recharge, Pay Bills, Bank and more - easily and securely - from your mobile handset.

How safe is it?

ngpay transactions offer security levels similar to ATM transactions. Once you become a ngpay user, for your security you will need to enter your unique 6-digit PIN every time you make a payment transaction. This PIN number is NOT stored on your handset, so hacking your stolen handset will not put you at risk.

ngpay's Mobile Wallet is a tamper-proof digital wallet on your phone and it stores your Bank account/Credit card details in an encrypted form. Even if you lose your phone, unauthorized users cannot access ngpay or your payment/banking transactions without your unique ngpay PIN. What’s more, you can simply call ngpay Customer Care @ +91 80 67004000 or SMS to +91 99009 06677, to block ngpay on your phone.

ngpay respects your privacy. ngpay does not store your card / bank information on its servers, neither do we share your personal information with any third party - other than those ngpay Partners that you have selected to use. These Partners may contact you directly for service related issues.

If your mobile turns off or loses connection during a transaction due to either low battery charge or bad connectivity, rest assured that your credit card will not be debited. Charges are debited to your credit card only on the successful completion of a payment transaction.

For the technically - minded....

ngpay provides 128-bit end-to-end financial grade security from the user’s handset through to the application servers. It uses an innovative approach based on the concept of application layer security and has been independently certified for financial transactions by leading security firms and financial institutions.

How much does ngpay cost?

ngpay is FREE! There are no charges for the download, registration and use of ngpay.

ngpay works on most JAVA enabled phones (any phone priced over Rs.2000 will safely support ngpay). All you need to do is activate GPRS with your mobile operator.

Most operators offer a free GPRS plan with no monthly rentals... you only pay for what you use. Customers can complete a transaction by spending only a few paise in data usage charges. Call your mobile operator to know more.

With ngpay, you only pay for the price of the product or service as charged by the ngpay partner. For some services, ngpay might charge a small convenience fee, which would be clearly mentioned on the Confirm Payment screen.

Once completed, your transaction details get stored under "ngpay History" under the “My Profile” menu. You will also receive a SMS and email with details of your transaction


UIDAI to start issuing identification numbers in Feb '11

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) said on Thursday that it would start issuing the 16-digit number to each resident of the country in February 2011.

We would start issuing the unique identification numbers (UIN) in February 2011. These numbers would be allotted on the basis of 11 biometrics including 10 fingerprints and iris, UIDAI Chairman Nandan Nilekani said here after a meeting with Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

The UIDAI would not allot any card, but 16-digit numbers, said Nilekani, who is on a visit to the state to discuss the UIN issue.

There would be eight regional offices of UIDAI and each such office would cover two-three states, he said.

Meanwhile, Hooda assured all help of the state government to the UIDAI and said the state level unit would function under financial commissioner and principal secretary (tourism) Keshni Anand Arora to allot UIN to Haryana residents.


Hundred times faster, cooler computers on their way

Indian-origin researcher Sanjeev John and his colleague Xun Ma of the University of Toronto have discovered new behaviour of light which could lead to cooler and faster computing.

The two quantum optics researchers have discovered 'new behaviours' of light changes within photonic crystals that could lead to faster optical information processing and compact computers that don't overheat.

"We discovered that by sculpting a unique artificial vacuum inside a photonic crystal, we can completely control the electronic state of artificial atoms (light) within the vacuum," lead author Xun Ma was quoted as saying in a statement here Tuesday.

"This discovery can enable photonic computers that are more than a hundred times faster than their electronic counterparts, without heat dissipation issues and other bottlenecks currently faced by electronic computing," said Ma.

Added Sanjeev John, "We designed a vacuum in which light passes through circuit paths that are one one-hundredth of the thickness of a human hair, and whose character changes drastically and abruptly with the wavelength of the light."

"A vacuum experienced by light is not completely empty, and can be made even emptier. It's not the traditional understanding of a vacuum."

Ma said, "In this vacuum, the state of each atom - or quantum dot - can be manipulated with color-coded streams of laser pulses that sequentially excite and de-excite it in trillionths of a second. These quantum dots can in turn control other streams of optical pulses, enabling optical information processing and computing."

The researchers, whose original aim was to gain a deeper understanding of optical switching as part of an effort to develop an all-optical micro-transistor that could operate within a photonic chip, ended up discovering a new and unexpected dynamic switching mechanism.

Their research also led to the discovery of corrections to one of the most fundamental equations of quantum optics, known as the Bloch equation.

Said John, "This new mechanism enables micrometer scale integrated all-optical transistors to perform logic operations over multiple frequency channels in trillionths of a second at microwatt power levels, which are about one millionth of the power required by a household light bulb. That this mechanism allows for computing over many wavelengths as opposed to electronic circuits which use only one channel, would significantly surpass the performance of current day electronic transistors."

India has 500 million mobile phone JAN 2010

By the start of the New Year, India will have breached a previously unthinkable landmarkhalf a billion wireless connections — making it the second largest group of mobile phone users after China.

Overall, telephone connections in India (fixed line and wireless) will be closing in on 550 million by the time you read this. This translates into a teledensity (phone connections per 100 population) of roughly 45%, an urban teledensity closer to 97% and a rural teledensity of about 18%.

India had crossed 488.40 million wireless connections at the end of October 2009 and will be breaching the half-billion wireless connections mark just about now. Yet, the actual number of subscribers might be less than half a billion, since a few hold multiple SIM cards and not all of them are in use at the same time.

In sharp contrast, wireline connectivity is down to 37.25 million phones, exhibiting a clear consumer preference for wireless, including mobile phones, as a preferred technology for voice and data communications. India’s broadband penetration, however, is abysmally low at 7.5 million — a consequence, say telecom experts, of policy failure, partly due to the declining use of wireline phones.

India’s telephony growth is remarkable despite the fact that the last two years have been full of controversy and litigation, with government and industry divided on crucial issues like spectrum policy, tariffs and introduction of new competition.

India has 13 to 14 operators providing wireless connectivity — mostly mobile — in its 22 service areas. Of these, 8-9 companies are operational and another 5-6 are obligated to launch service to meet rollout obligations. Many of the new entrants who had bagged spectrum in January 2008 have been unable to get off the ground nearly two years after receiving licences.


Latest Software Development Methodologies – Funny but True!

If you are a software professional, you would have come across various software development models / frameworks – such as Waterfall, Spiral, Agile, SCRUM, Extreme Programming, Test Driven Development, etc.. There are some interesting ‘models’ which you would have experienced in your rojects, but forgot to call it with a name. Scott Berkun has posted a few such funny but well-known development models, and there are a few hundred comments added by software professionals from there experience. I have copied a few selected such methods. (Yeah! I am following the Copy Paste Blogging Model! LOL [via @Scobleizer]

Asshole Driven development (ADD) – Any team where the biggest jerk makes all the big decisions is asshole driven development. All wisdom, logic or process goes out the window when Mr. Asshole is in the room, doing whatever idiotic, selfish thing he thinks is best. There may rules and processes, but Mr. Asshole breaks them and people follow anyway.

Ass Licking Management (ALM) – This is the management which is ready to lick its employee’s ass to keep them in the company…Most of the time, these employees follow GMPM methodology by finishing the assignment with hacks.

Cover Your Ass Engineering (CYAE) – The driving force behind most individual efforts is to make sure than when the shit hits the fan, they are not to blame.

Get Me Promoted Methodology (GMPM) – People write code and design things to increase their visibility, satisfy their boss’s whims, and accelerate their path to a raise or the corner office no matter how far outside of stated goals their efforts go. This includes allowing disasters to happen so people can be heroes, writing hacks that look great in the short term but crumble after the individual has moved on, and focusing more on the surface of work than its value.

Not My Problem (NMP) / Musical Chairs Style Development – All complex, complicated, expensive, or otherwise troublesome decisions/features/issues are pushed into someone else’s module.

Shovel-Driven Development -Get it out the door as quickly as possible, cut-n-paste from anything that you find that works on Google, if it works it’s ready. Closely related to “Duct-tape Driven Design”

Blog Driven Development – Developers who are constantly thinking about the subject of their next blog post. Nearly every somewhat interesting line of code they write is extracted into a blog post.

Budget Driven Development (BDD) – The time that a project will take is dictated by how much the client will pay, instead of how long it will take to develop the application, generally leading to massively over-budget projects.DBC – Development By Crisis (Management By Crisis) – Everything is a Crisis. Every task, you have to “Drop everything” and work all night long! Woe to the developer that mentions that the user acceptance testing doesn’t even begin for another 2 months… Everything is a disaster.

Must Use Specific Technology Development (MUSTP) – IN many projects where someone (even sometimes a reasonably smart and technically savvy engineer) dictates that the solution “must” use a specific technology (EJBs, XML, OODBMS, OSI protocol, .NET, Smalltalk, etc.) “because it’s the future”. Of course, you end up shoe-horning the technology into places where it clearly doesn’t fit – or it’s too immature to use successfully and eventually everyone looks back and says: “why the hell did we do that?”

Blame it on the Developer (BD) – When the application fails due to oversights on the part of the project manager, the developer is blamed. The developer may have warned you that the application wasn’t ready for release, that components from other groups weren’t ready and tested, but it was released anyway. This is often a resume building moment for the developer.

I Was an Expert Once Syndrome (IWEOS) – senior-level people “contributing” because of their years of “expertise” that grant them the inalienable right to shit on every discussion, whine about everything out of their comfort zone and squeeze in every last “favorite” feature into the final product.

Client Wants It Anyway(CWI) – no matter how inane or unusable, just because the marketing teams wants it then it has to be in there. Usually an over-budget, non-spec’ed that will never be paid for – this way of developing is usually propagated by weak and ham-fisted Project Managers.

CRAP = Completely Redundant Application Process – You create the same application someone in your company, division, department, or cubicle has already created. But you either A) want to write your own, or B) had no idea someone else had done it.

Management By Panic (MP) methodology. Every management action is predicated by an “emergency” change. Usually executed in the absence of planning.

Just One More Feature Outside Schedule (JOMFOS) – Regardless how high the pressure, how tight the schedule, or how late the project – JOMFOS product managers can always find something strategic (read: we have to land this contract) and groundbreaking (read: this one customer think it is clever) that not only breaks the current design, but also has to be squeezed in before the unmoving (yeah, right)

WiMAX Enabled Laptops in India by January 2010

Micro Star International (MSI) has announced that it is ready with its WiMAX-enabled laptops and will be offering them into the Indian market starting January 2010. The entire range of MSI laptops including its U-series ultra-portable netbooks, the stylish X-slim series and the Classic series will incorporate WiMAX in the forthcoming models.

WiMAX being the newest generation of wireless communication, it is poised to become an ubiquitous application. The WiMAX Forum had predicted that the combined equipment and service revenues from WiMAX in India would be worth $13 billion in 2012 and capture 19 million WiMAX subscribers, or 20% of the world’s WiMAX user base.

The ultra-light, power-saving X-Slim Series X340 and X600 models from MSI are the first Taiwan-based brand to receive WiMAX Forum Certification. While MSI Wind U120 is the world’s first ultra-portable netbook capable of supporting WiMAX


Virtual Phone Numbers (1 Phone with 10 Numbers) in India by Airtel

Airtel, in association with Comviva, is planning to launch Virtual Phone Numbers in India. This technology enables subscribers to use upto 10 different numbers on a single phone. The software will be embedded in the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself. This is expected to be launched in another 2 months.

Comviva has already tied up with MTN of South Africa and launched the multiple SIM in Cameroon and has acquired 30,000 new users as a result.

The technology requires the user to dial a given number from the specific mobile phone and activate the SIM though a password. Once that is done, the user can receive and make calls and even recharge the account through a pre-paid coupon.

The technology dramatically reduces the cost of ownership for a mobile connection and would also be useful as community phones in villages. The cheapest branded mobile costs at least Rs 1,000

SBI Freedom – State Bank Mobile Banking Application

State Bank of India recently launched a service called “SBI Freedom“. With “SBI Freedom”, customers can use facilities like balance inquiry, mini statement, fund transfer, cheque book issuance, mobile recharge and bill payment at any time and place through the use of their cellphones. SBI will soon be adding rail and air ticket booking and shopping to this service.

A customer is registered when he or she sends an SMS to 567676 prefixed with the area code. The service is activated either after the password is verified at an ATM or by the bank branch when the customer appears in person. This makes the system foolproof. People living in remote areas and students would benefit the most from this service.

With SBI Freedom, your bills can be paid or money sent to the loved ones or balance inquiries done anytime 24×7. SBI Freedom offers convenience, simple, secure, anytime and anywhere banking.

The limit for daily fund transfers and bill payments is Rs 5,000 and Rs 10,000 respectively. Currently the facility will be available only on Java-enabled mobile phones with GPRS connections. Customers can get the software for the service installed at any of the bank’s branches for free through Bluetooth technology.

The service is presently available on java enabled mobile phones over SMS/ GPRS/ WAP as also non java phones with GPRS connection. The service can be availed over the free GPRS facilities offered by various mobile service providers. The services for other non-Java mobile phones are under development and will be offered using Unstructured Supplementary Services Data (USSD).

With SBI Freedom, you can do:

* Funds transfer (within and outside the bank –using NEFT)
* Enquiry services (Balance enquiry/ Mini statement)
* Request services (cheque book request)
* Bill Payment (Utility bills, credit cards)
* M-Commerce (Mobile Top Up, Merchant payment, SBI life insurance premium)

The Mobile Banking Service will be available to all the customers having a satisfactory running account (Current/ Savings). The customers will have to register for the services.

Daily transaction limits for fund transfer and bill/ merchant payment will be Rs.5000 and Rs.10,000 respectively per customer with an overall calendar month limit of Rs.30,000.

The service will be carrier-agnostic i.e. all customers can avail the mobile banking service with the Bank irrespective of the service provider for their mobiles.

The service is free of charge. However, the cost of SMS / GPRS connectivity will have to be borne by the customer.

You can download the Mobile App to your mobile phone or PC.

How to Download SBI Mobile Banking Application to your Mobile Handset

The Mobile Banking Application can be downloaded using
(i) Bluetooth
(ii) Datacable
Using Bluetooth
STEP I: Downloading the Mobile Banking Application from website

* On the website click on Mobile Banking under Services. Click on ‘Download Mobile Banking Application’. You will be directed to a site for downloading the application.
* Choose your mobile make from the drop down options on the left side and then select your mobile model from the list displayed.
* You will get two options (i) Download application to PC (ii) Download application to mobile.
* If you have GPRS connectivity, choose the second option. You will receive a WAP link over SMS. You can download the application by clicking on the link.
* If you do not have GPRS connectivity, choose the first option to download the application to PC/laptop.
* The mobile banking application which is compatible with the model chosen by you will be saved on your PC.

STEP II: Download the Application from PC to mobile handset using Bluetooth

* Install the Bluetooth on the PC/ laptop, if not already available, using the CD provided by the manufacturer.
* Insert the Bluetooth dongle in the CPU. This works like a pendrive.
* Click on the Icon of Bluetooth on Desktop. A screen will open up.
* Please ensure the Bluetooth in your mobile is on and it is visible for other mobile devices.
* Click on My Bluetooth and choose Bluetooth Device Discovery.
* The mobiles which are in the vicinity of the computer having Bluetooth which is ON will be shown on the screen.
* Right click on the icon of the concerned mobile and choose Pair Device.

Another method of using Bluetooth is explained below

* Locate the SBIFreedom file on the computer and right-click the file icon. Select Send To -> Bluetooth and the mobile phone if it is displayed in the list.
* If the phone is not displayed in the list, select “Other…” -> a window titled “Select Device” appears.
* Select the phone in the list and click “OK”.
* Bluetooth file transfer begins.
* Note: If the computer has not been previously “paired” as a trusted device with the phone, this needs to be done by setting an arbitrary passkey on the phone and re-typing it on the computer to authenticate the file transfer.
* On the phone, a prompt may appear requiring authorization of the file transfer. Click “Yes” to receive the file. (This step is skipped if you have set you computer as a trusted device in the phone’s Bluetooth settings)
* A New Message Received indicates the file transfer is complete. Open the message to begin the installation process.
* Switch of the Bluetooth function in the mobile when it is not used as phones are susceptible to virus attacks.

Using Datacable

If your computer is not equipped with Bluetooth, it is possible to transfer the SBI Mobile Application you downloaded from to your phone over USB using the mobile manufacturer software which came with the mobile. For e.g. use Nokia PC Suite® software if you are using a Nokia mobile to transfer the SBI mobile application to your phone.
How to Register for “SBI Freedom” Mobile Banking Service

The registration process for Mobile Banking Service consists of two processes :
(i) Over mobile handset
(ii) At SBI ATM or at branch
Process over mobile handset
Step I

Send a SMS to 567676 (e.g.MBSREG Nokia 6600). You will get a User ID, default MPIN and a link by SMS which can be used to download the application if you have GPRS connectivity. If you have a non-java mobile phone with GPRS connection, you can use the Mobile Banking Service over WAP (explained under “WAP based Mobile Banking Service”). If you have a non java mobile phone without GPRS connection, you can use Mobile Banking Service over USSD which will be introduced by the Bank shortly.
Step II

If GPRS connectivity is not available, please do the following. Download the application on your PC by going to the website. After downloading, transfer application to your mobile using the data cable that was received along with the phone. If the phone and the PC have Bluetooth facility you can transfer the
application from the PC to the handset via the Bluetooth. If these are not feasible you may get assistance from the branch for installing the application on your
Step III

After installation of the application, please login using the User ID received in the SMS. The User ID is case sensitive and has to be entered as received over SMS. After opening the mobile banking application, you will be prompted to change the MPIN. If not prompted, please select “Settings” from Main Menu and choose “Change MPIN”. The default MPIN has to be entered in the “old MPIN” and a new MPIN of your choice (6 digits) in the “new MPIN” which has to be confirmed by entering the new MPIN once again in “Confirm new MPIN”. Send the request. You will receive the confirmation of change in MPIN over SMS. THE MPIN SHOULD HAVE SIX CHARACTERS ONLY.
Process at branch or SBI ATM

After completing the above process, you can complete the registration at the Home Branch of your account or at the nearest SBI ATM. AT the branch, fill up the required form which will be entered into the system and your account will be activated next day. At the ATM, after swiping the Debit Card, please choose the opt ion ‘Services’ and then select ‘Mobile Banking’. Under Mobile Banking, choose the option to ‘Register’, enter your mobile number and re-enter the number to confirm registration. You will receive a SMS regarding activation of your account. You can then use all the services offered under the Mobile Banking Services.
For using WAP based Mobile Banking Service.

The service will be available over all mobile phones (java / non java) which have GPRS connectivity for GSM users or data connectivity for CDMA users.

The registration process will be the same as for application based service i.e. in two phases – over mobile phone followed by process at ATM/ branch. The process over mobile phone, though essentially same as detailed above, will be done through the Browser of the mobile phone. The procedure is described below:

a) Send a SMS to 567676 (e.g.MBSREG Nokia 6600).
b) User ID and default MPIN will be received over SMS
c) Open the browser of the mobile phone
d) Enter the following address ;
e) A screen will be displayed asking for Login id and Pin.
f) Enter the User ID and the default MPIN in the respective fields and select ‘Login’.
g) The next screen will ask for WAP login id which will be received over SMS.
h) Enter this WAP login id in the browser screen. If the mobile phone does not facilitate accessing the Inbox while using another screen, the user will have to exit the browser and then open the inbox to access the SMS having the WAP login id.

Google public DNS,

Google announced that they have started offering public DNS servers as well. The system, called Google Public DNS, was designed to “make users’ web-surfing experiences faster, safer and more reliable”.

Google Public DNS is a free, global Domain Name System (DNS) resolution service, that you can use as an alternative to your current DNS provider. Just configure your computer’s network settings to use the IP addresses and as your DNS servers to use this free reliable DNS service. Your client programs will perform all DNS lookups using Google Public DNS. By using Google Public DNS you can Speed up your browsing experience, improve your security.

The DNS protocol is an important part of the web’s infrastructure, serving as the Internet’s phone book. Eevery time you visit a website, your computer performs a DNS lookup. Complex pages often require multiple DNS lookups before they start loading, so your computer may be performing hundreds of lookups a day.

The Internet Service Provider is usually the one that is providing the DNS servers to the customer. This happens more often than not automatically. There are however reasons to switch to other DNS servers with performance, privacy and censorship being three of the major reasons.

Configuring your network settings to use Google Public DNS

[source: google]

When you use Google Public DNS, you are changing your DNS “switchboard” operator from your ISP to Google Public DNS.

In most cases, the IP addresses used by your ISP’s domain name servers are automatically set by your ISP via the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). To use Google Public DNS, you need to explicitly change the DNS settings in your operating system or device to use the Google Public DNS IP addresses. The procedure for changing your DNS settings varies according to operating system and version (Windows, Mac or Linux) or the device (computer, phone, or router).
Google Public DNS IP addresses

The Google Public DNS IP addresses are as follows:


You can use either number as your primary or secondary DNS server. You can specify both numbers, but do not specify one number as both primary and secondary.
Changing your DNS servers settings

Many systems allow you to specify multiple DNS servers, to be contacted in a priority order. In the following instructions, steps are provided to specify only the Google Public DNS servers as the primary and secondary servers, to ensure that your setup will correctly use Google Public DNS in all cases. Depending on your network setup, you may need administrator/root privileges to change these settings.
Microsoft Windows

DNS settings are specified in the TCP/IP Properties window for the selected network connection.

Example: Changing DNS server settings on Microsoft Windows Vista

1. Go the Control Panel.
2. Click Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center, then Manage network connections.
3. Select the connection for which you want to configure Google Public DNS. For example:
* To change the settings for an Ethernet connection, right-click Local Area Connection, and click Properties.
* To change the settings for a wireless connection, right-click Wireless Network Connection, and click Properties.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
4. Select the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.
5. Click Advanced and select the DNS tab. If there are any DNS server IP addresses listed there, write them down for future reference, and remove them from this window.
6. Click OK.
7. Select Use the following DNS server addresses. If there are any IP addresses listed in the Preferred DNS server or Alternate DNS server, write them down for future reference.
8. Replace those addresses with the IP addresses of the Google DNS servers: and
9. Restart the connection you selected in step 3.
10. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Testing your new settings below.
11. Repeat the procedure for additional network connections you want to change.

Mac OS X

DNS settings are specified in the Network window.

Example: Changing DNS server settings on Mac OS 10.5

1. From the Apple menu, click System Preferences, then click Network. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2. Select the connection for which you want to configure Google Public DNS. For example:
* To change the settings for an Ethernet connection, select Built-In Ethernet, and click Advanced.
* To change the settings for a wireless connection, select Airport, and click Advanced.
3. Select the DNS tab.
4. Click + to replace any listed addresses with, or add, the Google IP addresses at the top of the list: and
5. Click Apply and OK.
6. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Testing your new settings below.
7. Repeat the procedure for additional network connections you want to change.


In most modern Linux distributions, DNS settings are configured through Network Manager.

Example: Changing DNS server settings on Ubuntu

1. In the System menu, click Preferences, then click Network Connections.
2. Select the connection for which you want to configure Google Public DNS. For example:
* To change the settings for an Ethernet connection, select the Wired tab, then select your network interface in the list. It is usually called eth0.
* To change the settings for a wireless connection, select the Wireless tab, then select the appropriate wireless network.
3. Click Edit, and in the window that appears, select the IPv4 Settings tab.
4. If the selected method is Automatic (DHCP), open the dropdown and select Automatic (DHCP) addresses only instead. If the method is set to something else, do not change it.
5. In the DNS servers field, enter the Google Public DNS IP addresses, separated by a space:
6. Click Apply to save the change. If you are prompted for a password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
7. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Testing your new settings below.
8. Repeat the procedure for additional network connections you want to change.

If your distribution doesn’t use Network Manager, your DNS settings are specified in /etc/resolv.conf.

Example: Changing DNS server settings on a Debian server

1. Edit /etc/resolv.conf:

sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf

2. If any nameserver lines appear, write down the IP addresses for future reference.
3. Replace the nameserver lines with, or add, the following lines:

nameserver nameserver

4. Save and exit.
5. Restart any Internet clients you are using.
6. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Testing your new settings below.

Additionally, if you are using DHCP client software that overwrites the settings in /etc/resolv.conf, you will need to set up the client accordingly by editing the client’s configuration file.

Example: Configuring DHCP client sofware on a Debian server

1. Back up /etc/resolv.conf:

sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/

2. Edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf:

sudo vi /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf

3. If there is a line containing domain-name-servers, write down the IP addresses for future reference.
4. Replace that line with, or add, the following line:

prepend domain-name-servers,;

5. Save and exit.
6. Restart any Internet clients you are using.
7. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Testing your new settingsbelow.


To change your settings on a router:

1. In your browser, enter the IP address to access the router’s administration console.
2. When prompted, enter the password to access network settings.
3. Find the screen in which DNS server settings are specified.
4. If there are IP addresses specified in the fields for the primary and seconday DNS servers, write them down for future reference.
5. Replace those addresses with Google IP addresses: and
6. Save and exit.
7. Restart your browser.
8. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Testing your new settingsbelow.

Mobile or other devices

To change your settings on a mobile device:

1. Go to the screen in which wi-fi settings are specified.
2. Find the screen in which DNS server settings are specified.
3. If there are IP addresses specified in the fields for the primary and seconday DNS servers, write them down for future reference.
4. Replace those addresses with Google IP addresses: and
5. Save and exit.
6. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Testing your new settings below.

Testing your new settings

To test that the Google DNS resolver is working:

1. From your browser, type in a hostname, such as If it resolves correctly, bookmark the page, and try accessing the page from the bookmark. If both of these tests work, everything is working correctly. If not, go to step 2.
2. From your browser, type in a fixed IP address. You can use (which points to the website as the URL*. If this works correctly, bookmark the page, and try accessing the page from the bookmark. If these tests work (but step 1 fails), then there is a problem with your DNS configuration; check the steps above to make sure you have configured everything correctly. If these tests do not work, go to step 3.
3. Roll back the DNS changes you made and run the tests again. If the tests still do not work, then there is a problem with your network settings; contact your ISP or network administrator for assistance.
