Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18559
ftpd makes DNS lookups even though nsswitch disables it
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:04 EDT
ftpd from wu-ftpd makes DNS requests to resolve the source ip-address even
though it shouldn't.
Thsi happens even though the ip address under question is in /etc/hosts:
and nsswitch.conf contains:
/etc/resolv.conf contains entries for name servers (I would like to have
"hosts: files dns" in nsswitch.conf, actually).
So DNS is configured not to be used...
The rest is completey standard RH7.0
But maybe this is a "feature"?! (Though I would call it a bug.)
Looking into it...
Specifically tested. /etc/hosts is followed correctly. The only possible
cause I can come up with is a library mismatch.
Non-duplicatable, close this ticket.
