    Mozilla DNS Server


    Hi! Can anyone tell me which DNS does mozilla use to translate addresses ? Or where it is kept ? I want to do some custom firewalling so I would like to now.
    Another question : How safe is Guarddog when configured tightly ? is there any way that hackers can fake their IP's so they look like my mail server etc. Which services are safe to stop ? Why don't we (the forum members) post at topic on esatblishing basic security ? I downloaded all the HOWTO;s on netfilter.org but it would be nice to have it all simply explained Thank you.

    Mozilla uses the same DNS configuration as every other program: /etc/resolv.conf.

    Would you mind enlightening me on what Guarddog is?

    Guarddog is a frontend for configuring iptables. It is a program written in C. You can get it at www.simonzone.com I think. Thanks for the response Dolda2000.

    Try starting mozilla from an xterm and see how it's crashing and what it tells you there. That's usually the best place to start trying to fix/find bugs.
