- After this completes type exit to leave the command prompt
Mac - Flush the DNS Cache
- Open the terminal by using Spotlight Search or by pressing Command + Space and then type Terminal
- Double click the application icon for Terminal to open it
- Type in sudo dscacheutil -flushcache;sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
