name resolve question


  I am using dynamic ppp connect to my ISP. While I can surf the net but 
I have problem regarding of name resolving or whatever. For example I can 
ping the ftp.debian.org but can't ftp to the same site with dot name 

< ping is ok > 
$ ping ftp.debian.org 
PING ftp.debian.org ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=239 time=396.8 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=239 time=330.4 ms

< ftp with dot name notation; failed >
$ ftp ftp.debian.org
ftp: ftp.debian.org: Unknown server error

< ftp with IP address; ok >
$ ftp
Connected to
220 bugs.cps.cmich.edu FTP server (Version wu-2.4(1) Thu Oct 5 18:54:30

Can someone help me?
