The nameserver does not need to be local. It can use the ones in resolv.conf Make sure you use numeric hosts in resolv.conf I know that is obvious but I have seen people put textual hostnames in the file and then wonder why it does not work. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
