Re: weird: nslookup can't resolve hostnames
Mi problem with 'nslookup' is kind of strange, the story is:
I've installed a Debian Sarge 3.1r2 as a gateway which is running Squid and
Dansguardian for proxy and web content filtering. My internet conection is
a ADSL (ppp0) link.
still the same problem.
# nslookup ftp.debian.org
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
Default server: 126.96.36.199
Default server: 188.8.131.52
nslookup: Couldn't find server 'cancun.net': Temporary failure in name
Put your firewall settings back to what it was when the whole setup worked.
Do you have Dynamic IP or static IP for your ADSL connection ? And how
is your name server address obtained ? via DHCP or static name server ?
Most likely the problem is that the name server used in Squid and/or
dansguardian is no longer accessible. Check the nameserver settings.
