As I mentioned before, you end up on this Roadrunner page when you do 
not have a proper DNS server set on you host. That is in general not 
something DOS specific, that is something you need to have on every 
OS unless you want to access remote servers by their IP address only.
If Arachne brings up the (which) homepage, it could be that there is 
an Arachne specific setting for the primary DNS...
