Well, sound like DNS prblems.

What is the content of your /etc/resolv.conf?

then, when there is an entry like:


( being the IP of the MAC), then check if the DNS on your MAC
is working by:
nslookup -

set q=any

Well, then your MAC should resolve some IP and mx data, when not, the
DNS on your MAC is misfunctional.
You also can specify DNS in the /etc/resolv.conf that are on the
outside, or you could run named as caching resolver.

Therefore, populate /etc/hosts with the IP/name of FreeBSD box, run
and then start named.

In /etc/resolv.conf put a :

as first nameserver statement, and FreeBSD will directly resolve...
