Browser does not resolve some urls
Hi all !
I have a somewhat peculiar problem: my browser cannot resolve some urls. :(
The prime example (but it's not the only site affected): Google.
In the browser (firefox, konqueror) "www.google.de" does not get resolved.
In bash "ping www.google.de" returns "ping: unknown host www.google.de"
BUT in bash "host www.google.de" returns
"www.google.de is an alias for www.google.com.
www.google.com is an alias for www.google.akadns.net.
www.google.akadns.net has address 188.8.131.52
www.google.akadns.net has address 184.108.40.206"
If I cut'n'paste one of these addresses into the browser, it displays the site.
So the problem is not connectivity but address resolution.
The problem is specific to my linux-box (debian woody r2), the DNS repeater in the DSL router works for the rest of my zoo (MacOS X, Win2K, BeOS)
Pleasy, does anyone have any idea how to avoid this "manual DNS resolution" ?
