DNS Information Groper for Windows

You can install the Bind DNS Information Groper (DIG) on your Windows machine. Dig is built into Mac and Linux and has a lot more features than the Windows nslookup tool.

Paul Heinlein has created a great page on using DIG at DIG How to. Paul’s page is well worth the time to read if you query DNS records on a regular basis. Dig -h will list all the available options.

To get DIG download BIND 9.10.1-P1. Follow the instructions in DIG DNS Tool for Windows 7 to install it.
