Configuring Google NoSSLSearch for Windows DNS Servers

5:35 PM Posted by Erik Pitti 9 comments
Create a new Primary DNS Zone on your DNS server for www.google.com.
Add a single CNAME record with a blank alias name and “nosslsearch.google.com.” for the FQDN for target host. The trailing dot after “com” is important.
Google NOSSLSEARCH
Clear your DNS server cache by right-clicking on your server in DNS manager and selecting Clear Cache.
When your clients request www.google.com, your DNS server will direct the client to nosslsearch.google.com instead of www.l.google.com.
Sample output from NSLOOKUP after configuring this DNS zone:

C:\Windows\system32>nslookup www.google.com
Server:  dc02.domain.local
Address:  10.254.1.2

Name:    nosslsearch.google.com
Address:  216.239.32.20
Aliases:  www.google.com
Hope this helps.
