Iv searched the forums for this and havnt found it, this has also been doing this to me on slax and at the moment I have no dedicated *nix installation.
simply put I cannot resolve hostnames..
directly connecting to the IP's of sites or services works (though slowly), and I can traceroute/ping/nmap/nc. my /etc/resolv.conf has both of the nameservers in it.. and I have used hmmm... iftraffic? or whatever network monitoring tool knoppix comes with and find that I am actually sending out resolve requests to both of the dns servers on port 53 only to have no return
I am behind a NAT router, working as a DHCP. I have tried forwarding port 53 to my specific terminal with no avail. The fact that this has been happening on 2 different live cd's means its probrably hardware related (even if with my router hardware).. I'm using a NETGEAR RP614v2 router..
For a while I thought it could have been something wrong with konqueror, fiddled with the proxies (I'm not sure why its completly different..) but it does the same with firefox.
cant whois.. havnt tried host.
this is really pissing me off..
and Im just getting back into linux after a 3 year break from a burn out..
it seems all the requests are going through eth1.. shouldnt they be going through eth0? on startup theres a DHCP request for both..
thats about all the information I can think of.. using knoppix 5 and the latest version of slax does it to.
thank you :)
