The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical naming system for computers, services, or any resource participating in the Internet. It serves as the "phone book" for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer into numeric (binary) IP addresses.
The DNS client in TweakMASTER helps you diagnose various connectivity issues by letting you query the DNS server of your choice. By default, your computer's first default DNS server is queried. However you may elect to use any other DNS for troubleshooting. When resolving web site connectivity problems, it is often useful to first query WhoIs database for authoritative DNS servers, and then compare DNS query results from your default DNS server and the authoritative DNS server for domain in question.
TweakMASTER is able to execute user-specified programs upon detection of an active Internet connection. This feature is useful when you don't want programs to be started on Windows startup, yet want them to be available when you connect to the Internet. Instant messaging (MSN, ICQ), VoIP (Skype, etc.) and other software fall into this category. If you don't have an "always-on" Internet connection, you will appreciate this function.
Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) disconnect users that appear to be "idle" and not doing anything productive with their Internet Connection. This happens more often during the peak hours when the ISP's infrastructure is overloaded. And of course, once you're disconnected, you are faced with repeated busy signals when trying to re-connect. If you have such an ISP, TweakMASTER can help you to stay online at all times.
