DNS name resolution not working in fisher
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-3 i686; en-US; 0.7)
With the basic install (default kernel, etc), I cannot resolve names.
/etc/resolv.conf is correct, /etc/nsswitch.conf is correct. I can ping the
IP addresses of the nameservers (so I have connectivity and they are
alive), however all calls to nslookup, host, and dig fail with the
;; Connection timed out. Server not responding.
However, a RH6.2 machine on the same network works fine.
I have to believe it's a configuration issue, but I can't find any
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot normally (fisher default configuration)
2.$ host www.sun.com
Actual Results: ;; connection timed out. server not responding.
Expected Results: I should have gotten valid results for sun.
The machine is a dhcp client hanging off a linksys dsl router box (acting
as the dhcp server).
I've spent a few hours on IRC over the weekend, no one seems to have
experience with fisher. Posting to linux.redhat.misc didn't help either.
Have the configuration changed for fisher? Am I doing something brain dead?
Please show us your nameserver line in /etc/resolv.conf and the output of
"ipchains -L -n"
This appears to be the same problem as everyone else is reporting (I swore
nothing showed up before I logged this). At any rate, I would feel comfortable
if this were marked duplicate of 25951. I will go through the fix listed there.
However, it should be noted that I chose a more or less basic install package,
ie I didn't configure the firewall at all.
Not a TC issue - wrong version
