Description whampton 2001-02-26 02:09:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686)

I can ping by IP address but nslookup/dig/host does not resolve names at

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install beta
2. upgrade to 2.4.2 to get PCMCIA working so I have networking
3. setup /etc/resolv.conf identical to my 7.0 machine or my 6.2 machine 
    on the same network
4. try using nslookup, dig, or host to resolve names

Actual Results:  DNS timeout, no resolution	

Expected Results:  DNS resolution	

	domain staffnet.com
	search staffnet.com
	nameserver 207.x.x.x

Tested at same time on several machines.

Could you check your firewall rules, please ?
Either ipchains -l or iptables -L should give you the rules.
My guess is that you selected high or medium security during installation.

Comment 2 whampton 2001-02-26 13:34:40 UTC
I did select high or medium security.  I'll check the rules.  After posting and
reporting a bug, I thought that might be the issue.   I'll check tonight when I
get back to that laptop!  Thanks!

Is the installation manual draft online and does it cover these issues?

Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-02-28 10:24:44 UTC
Assuming this was caused by the firewall settings because you didn't supply any further information.
