It seems I have a problem with resolver.
ifconfig -a shows:
xl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 162.x.y.z netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 162.x.y.255
inet6 fe80::250:4ff:fe0a:f6f0%xl0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
/etc/resolv.conf is right:
All nameservers are working properly on every other machine. I deleted
host.conf file (which was also right) and nothing changes.
Commands host, nslookup, and dig all work very well for both internal an
external sites. But ping for example fails:
cannot resolve www.xxx.yy: Unknown host
where www.xxx.yy is any machine name except localhost (which is taken
When using IPs everything works fine of course.
I'm also running a sniffer which displays all in/out packets to my 1st
NS when I run host, nslookup, or dig. But all others (ping,
traceroute,...) fail without even asking the NS (ie. the sniffer doesn't
show a single packet!).
I wonder if anyone has had similar problems and how and if they were solved?
