This provides the addresses of various servers which a Tardis machine might need to use.

DNS

We have an internal caching nameserver, currently leela, 193.62.81.14. However, other machines should be able to cope if it's down for maintenence, so we also use one of the university's servers. (Currently 129.215.200.7, but we should check if that's what we're supposed to use.)

Thus most machines have a /etc/resolv.conf along the lines of:

search tardis.ed.ac.uk
nameserver 193.62.81.14
nameserver 129.215.200.7
