Hello. I'm using the dns service on a router box. This router does
provide dns service, on which every computer in the LAN has a local domain name (computername.our.lan)
Now the built in dns server's function is limited; it does not relay
type of record. Thus sending mail using sendmail always get hostname lookup failure.
1. If I change my name server address in resolv.conf to use my ISP's
server, I cannot access lan computers using local hostnames.
2. If I use our dns server, I cannot send mails through sendmail.
So what should I do? Can I ask sendmail to use ISP's dns server, while
the rest programs use local dns server? I just realized I can do this in resolve.conf: ==== # our LAN's dns server nameserver 192.168.0.1 # ISP nameserver 188.8.131.52
Hope this is the best method.
But this works on my notebook but not on my desktop computer, both 5.2 RELEASE
dino is my desktop computer: dino# cat /etc/resolv.conf search realss nameserver 192.168.0.138 nameserver 184.108.40.206 dino# host -t mx hotmail.com Host not found, try again.
thinkpad is my notebook: thinkpad# cat /etc/resolv.conf search realss nameserver 192.168.0.138 nameserver 220.127.116.11 thinkpad# host -t mx hotmail.com hotmail.com mail is handled (pri=5) by mx4.hotmail.com hotmail.com mail is handled (pri=5) by mx1.hotmail.com hotmail.com mail is handled (pri=5) by mx2.hotmail.com hotmail.com mail is handled (pri=5) by mx3.hotmail.com
