Description chad 1999-10-24 00:00:05 EDT
This problem (bug) exists in 6.x series.  I have a
DNS server that resides at IP 10.0.0.1.  Using a RHL 6.x
series installation on another machine if I put 'nameserver
10.0.0.1' in the /etc/resolv.conf file, nslookup will not
work.  If I change that to say 192.168.100.1 or even
10.2.2.1, it works.

Since 10.0.0.1 is my firewall, default route, DNS server,
etc. this is rather a PIA. :)

Thanks,
Chad

It sounds like there is no reverse DNS for 10.0.0.1.
I'm changing the category to "bind" because nslookup is
part of the "bind-utils" package.

I fail to see how not having a in-addr.arpa entry makes a difference.
You are correct there is no reverse entry for 10.0.0.1, BUT one would
need connectivity to the dns server to find that out.  When one uses
nslookup it should connect to the IP address listed in
/etc/resolv.conf, which when defined as 10.0.0.1, nslookup refuses to
do.  Ping, ssh, telnet, ftp, http, etc. all work to 10.0.0.1, so the
IP setup is correct.  The problem appears to be isolated to nslookup,
though I suppose dig might also have problems, I've not checked.
