[expert] DNS trouble?

2003-07-05 Thread engage
I have this weird problem that only 2 web sites won't load into Mozilla or 
Konqueror. I can ping the sites and dig returns DNS info. Furthermore, the 
browsers in my Win2K client can load these sites. Also, when I add the 
IP/domainname combo into /etc/hosts, the sites will load into the Linux 
browsers. In some ways, the indication is a DNS problem with my ISP but since 
the Windows client works OK it seems to be my problem. Any ideas?

[expert] DNS trouble on MDK 9.0

2002-12-18 Thread Jim C
OK, I set up a dns server on my gateway.  It works fine from the clients 
but using the dns names I can't ping any of the clients from the server. 
 I can ping the IPs.  I've tried adding this to resolv.conf:
nameserver 127.0.0.1  That is how I fixed it last time,
but it doesn't help.  I've also tried shutting down shorewall and that 
doesn't help either.  I've noticed that if I try to add a client using 
the wizard provided by Mandrake that clicking on the icon doesn't start 
it.  Anybody got any clues?  Are there some issues of which I am not aware?

Look at your db files and make sure that you have all the appropriate
periods at the ends of the lines. It's hard to know without looking at
the db files though.

what happens if you try this:
host name of client name of dns server



The following:


[jcolling@enigma jcolling]$ host spartack enigma 
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
[jcolling@enigma jcolling]$ host spartack.microverse.net enigma 
Using domain server:
Name: enigma
Address: 192.168.1.253#53
Aliases: 

Host spartack.microverse.net not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
[jcolling@enigma jcolling]$ 

I should probably double check the db files as they were generated 
mostly by the wizard.

Does your /etc/nsswitch.conf file have 'dns' for hosts?

Grr!!
It just started working again.  Friggin thing is haunted or something.
Hmmm... Either that or perhaps I was just tired lastnight.

I did notice that this syntax for clients works:


hostname1IN AXXX.XXX.X.252
hostname2   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
hostname3IN AXXX.XXX.X.239


while this does not:


hostname1.IN AXXX.XXX.X.252
hostname2.   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
hostname3.IN AXXX.XXX.X.239


I also noticed that if you use this:


hostname1.network.netIN AXXX.XXX.X.252
hostname2.network.net   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
hostname3.network.netIN AXXX.XXX.X.239


You can't then use hostname1 as an alias for hostname1.network.net

Anyway thanks for all your help! :-)

What Happens if you set it up as

hostname1.network.net.IN AXXX.XXX.X.252
hostname2.network.net.   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
hostname3.network.net.IN AXXX.XXX.X.239

This should work, depending on the Original Zone that the db file is in.

I will assume that the domain you have set in your DNS is network.net

 I did notice that this syntax for clients works:
 
  hostname1IN AXXX.XXX.X.252
  hostname2   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
  hostname3IN AXXX.XXX.X.239

As the names are not ending with a period, these 3 lines are equivalents
to
hostname1.network.net.IN AXXX.XXX.X.252
hostname2.network.net.   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
hostname3.network.net.IN AXXX.XXX.X.239


 while this does not:
 
  hostname1.IN AXXX.XXX.X.252
  hostname2.   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
  hostname3.IN AXXX.XXX.X.239

In these lines, because the names are ending with a period, you are
telling that the full qualified name are just what typed, i.e,
hostname1, hostname2 and hostname3.

 
 I also noticed that if you use this:
 
  hostname1.network.netIN AXXX.XXX.X.252
  hostname2.network.net   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
  hostname3.network.netIN AXXX.XXX.X.239

Again, as in these lines the names are not are not ending with a period,
these are equivalents to:
hostname1.network.net.network.net.IN AXXX.XXX.X.252
hostname2.network.net.network.net.   IN AXXX.XXX.X.251
hostname3.network.net.network.net.IN AXXX.XXX.X.239
 
 You can't then use hostname1 as an alias for hostname1.network.net

In other words, if you don't place a period after the name, the domain
name is implicitly placed after the name. If you place a period after
the name, that's going to be the real name, without the domain name
being implicitly attached.

Finally, to set an alias, use a CNAME register.

Hope these few lines will help you.
