    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.
    Thanks
    Bruce
