dns and exim troubles ...
I've got some trouble with DNS and exim, and I hope someone'll
be able to help me on my way ...
I am running a testing version of Debian right now, but the
problem was there even when running Debian 2.2r0.
OK, so now what happens?
if I try to
telnet smrgol smtp
(with smrgol being my local host) it takes about half a minute
until I get the "... connected to ..." message, and about the
same time until I get the exim greeting.
If I, instead, use the IP address, I am instantly connected,
and then it takes some time to start exim.
(BTW, exim is handled by inetd).
Any ideas where the problem might be?
YES! That's just me, just being! http://www.2b1.de/
