Bug#609491: project: Nameserver or DNS
I'm working with computers since 1990. I'm no expert. I'm working with
Debian about 5 years.
My computer gets the ip-address from the router (dhcp). He gets the
address of the nameserver from the router too. The ip-address of the
nameserver is 192.168.0.1. The file /etc/resolv.conf got the line
The nameserver of my provider is slow. So I got an account on
dyndns.com and use their DNS.
If I put the address of the nameserver from dyndns.com into the file
resolv.conf (nameserver 22.214.171.124) there will be every second and
more a request to the nameserver (using the command "netstat -anp").
If I put the old address "192.168.0.1" back into the file "resolv.conf"
requests to the nameserver went normal, means: requests will be done if
a program really needs a new address for e.g. blaaa.blaa.bla.
I got the same behaviour if I put the address of the nameserver from my
provider into resolv.conf "126.96.36.199".
I guess this is really strange. I did never saw so much queries to a
nameserver on my computer.
Hope, somebody will help!
