You might want to ensure you have connectivity by trying to ping something by IP. (184.108.40.206 would work if you don't know an IP off the top of your head) Anyways, to answer your question, nameservers are configured in /etc/resolv.conf nameserver xx.xx.xx.xx is the format of the directive in it. -- Thanks, Josh Paetzel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
