Perhaps I'm not clear. The situation is | my ISP's dns server cannot return IP address for *.sourceforge.net, | *.slashdot.org. Other local ISP's dns server cannot return IP address | for *.sourceforge.net & *.slashdot.org. | | [EMAIL PROTECTED]:~>dig @220.127.116.11 sourceforge.net | | ; <<>> DiG 8.3 <<>> @18.104.22.168 sourceforge.net | ; (1 server found) | ;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch | ;; res_nsend: Operation timed out | Exit 9 | | I talked about it on local forums and happen to find most Chinese dns | servers behave the same.

I told you how to setup your _own_ _DNS_ server. You won't need to use other DNS server. Shantanoo _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
