 +**Tip:** Use forward-slashes (''/''​) in file names and paths in your ''​binkd.cfg''​ file (even on Windows) rather than backslashes (''​\''​).
 +
 +**Tip:** Use ''​root-domain binkp.net''​ in your ''​binkd.cfg''​ file to enable IP address look-ups from a FidoNet node number (e.g. FidoNet address ''​1:​103/​705''​ can be resolved to an IP address using the hostname ''​f705.n103.z1.binkp.net''​). This used to be possible using the domains ''​fidonet.net''​ and ''​fidonet.org'',​ but not currently (use ''​binkp.net''​ instead).
 +
 +**NOTE:** If root-domain is used, it applies to //all// FTNs listed. This is not proper if you are in more than one FTN because all f.n.z DNS lookups will go to this domain no matter what FTN they are. In the case of binkp.net, it only knows fidonet. Each FTN that provides DNS lookups for f.n.z format need their own DNS lookup host specified. So you should use the newer format of binkd'​s domain lines which place the DNS lookup host at the end of the line. At this time, there are only four FTNs that provide f.n.z DNS lookups. For all others, do not put anything in the "DNS lookup host" field of the domain lines. When using this form of domain line, be sure to remove or comment out any root-domain line you may have.

 +eg:<file binkd.cfg>​
 +  #domain FTN      outbound dir  zone  DNS lookup host
 +  domain ​ fidonet ​ bP/​outbound ​  ​fZ ​   binkp.net
 +  domain ​ fsxnet ​  ​bP/​outbound ​  ​fZ ​   fsxnet.nz
 +  domain ​ scinet ​  ​bP/​outbound ​  ​fZ ​   scinet-ftn.org

-That's all find and dandy if Fido is the only FTN network you're on... but what if you're a member of more than one (a.k.a. "​othernets"​). Well, things get a teensy bit more complicated. We'll need a couple more replacements.+That's all fine and dandy if Fido is the only FTN network you're on... but what if you're a member of more than one (a.k.a. "​othernets"​).
