Domain Name & Network Time Server Update

May 26, 2022

Domain Name Servers

The legacy DNS server addresses were depreciated in August 2018, and will continue to respond until June 30, 2022. The new servers are faster and more reliable.
It is only necessary to configure DNS on your computer or device if it connects to the network using a static IP address without use of the DHCP protocol.

If you are manually configuring DNS servers, use the following IP addresses in the order provided below:

  • 144.118.27.33
  • 144.118.27.50

Network Time Service

End of support for the legacy network time servers (below) was announced on January 9, 2017, with June 30, 2017, announced as the last day of reliable operation of these old time servers. This deadline has been extended on a best effort basis until June 30, 2022. This will be the last extension. For the most reliable service please update your servers now.

To use the Drexel Network Time Service, your device must support the Network Time Protocol and be connected to the Drexel campus network.
