    Problem resolving domain names on netscape

    Hi all
    Newbie question. It seems to take an inordinately long time for netscape to resolve domain names, yet when I do an nslookup from the command line it's instantaneous. I know they're both using /etc/resolv.conf. Why does the command line take no time at all and netscape 30 secs? Is it trying some other DNS server first or something. Any ideas gratefully received.

    Has your browser got any security measures link anti-phishing protection or so...

    If yes, then b4 resolving the name, ur browser performs anti-phishing/some other checks on the domain name to ensure the resolved IP is valid...
