  • Hi,
    what should i do with my apple tv 4...
    should i change the DNS, IP, both?
    I have the option to change 1 dns only (and 1 IP)
    best regards from France
  • Hello FL450,

    You need to change to the DNS IP Address as mentioned in the configuration instructions. You may try to use just one if this is the only option you have but we perform maintenance on the VIPs as needed so it's important to configure both.

    IPv4: 64.6.64.6 and 64.6.65.6

    What I would suggest is to configure one for now then perform the test specified on "Testing your Verisign Public DNS Settings" section to make sure that you are connected. You can always switch between the IPs if this is the only option you have at this point.
