Name resolution for the name account-public-service-prod03.ol.epicgames.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded. RRS feed

  • Question

  • So when I was playing a game, my internet randomly went out and when I went into the windows logs it said, "Name resolution for the name account-public-service-prod03.ol.epicgames.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded." I think I could of been ddos and was wondering if anyone knows if this is related to ddosing.

  • Hi Dante,

    It absolutely can be.
    It can be your internal DNS server (which is likely your router), or your public DNS (which is provided by your ISP or a public DNS defined by you).

    If the port for DNS isn't open from the internet (which usually isn't), it should not be your internal DNS being targeted.
    In this case it would be the Public DNS which would have issues.

    However it may also be an issue with the DNS functionality of your internal router/server, but if so it would not likely be related to an DDOS attack.

    Best regards

  • You can check the connections on your DNS servers.
    If there is a spike in the amount of connections (not the bandwith), it is likely a DDOS attack.

    DDOSing is more about the amount of simultanious connections, not the bandwith.
