Hello list, On two machines, I have my DSL modem set as DNS server, and it forwards to my ISP's servers. This works well for external hosts. I also have "order hosts, bind" in /etc/host.conf, but even though both machines have full LAN host names and addresses in their /etc/hosts, every DNS lookup goes straight to the modem, which of course knows nothing of the local layout.
What else do I have to do to make host.conf effective? Would a hammer help? -- Regards Peter
