    I think I give up man. I have no experience with using a PC as a router. This may be WinProxy's fault - that maybe the packets ARE leaving the mandrake PC, but packets can't make it back.

    This much I do know for sure. If you can't ping a domain like "" then it may be a dns problem or network problem. If you can't ping an IP address like "" then it is NOT a dns problem and is completely a network problem.

    I have the same problem

    Hi guys..

    I have the same trouble with the DNS as irki_blue_stone...but in my case I'm trying the next example:

    I have already gotten the next result correctly:

    $ dig -x

    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 26669
    ;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

    ; IN PTR

    ;; ANSWER SECTION: 259200 IN PTR localhost.

    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION: 259200 IN NS ns.linux.bogus.

    ;; Query time: 3 msec
    ;; SERVER:
    ;; WHEN: Sun Dec 23 02:26:17 2001
    ;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 91

    but not the next one

    I got the same problem:

    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>>
    ;; global options: printcmd
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

    I'm working inside a campus and I have an IP address asigned dynamically (DHCP)

    Next time don't post in somebody elses topic. I seriously doubt you are having the same problem as the other guy did. Just because 2 people sneeze doesn't mean they've both got a cold.

    I want to see the results for the following command:

    dig +norec

  11. #40

    uppss sorry

    Thank you man...I created another post for my specific problem

    The result for the command that you requested is on " Caching Only DNS problem"
