| Hello. It has been three days since I cannot access sourceforge.net, using 
| many different Chinese dns server:
| 
| [EMAIL PROTECTED]:~>host sf.net
| Host not found, try again.
| [EMAIL PROTECTED]:~>host sourceforge.net
| Host not found, try again.
| 
| It behave like the last year's Google being blocked in China. But I don't 
| know sourceforge has anything to do with political stuff. 
| 
| Can anyone tell me sourceforge's ip address? Or better tell me a 
| world-accessible dns server, that I can help myself with such things.
| 
| If it is truly blocked, then it is no use to have IP address. But I'll have 
| a try.
| 
| Thank you.

As you are using FreeBSD, why not have your own caching name server?
Method:

1. set your hostname
    hostname="test.tld"
    in your /etc/rc.conf
2. cd /etc/namedb
3. sh make-localhost
4. start named.
    add following line in /etc/rc.conf
    named_enable="YES"

to test

dig -x 127.0.0.1
