apologies if this question should have been posted in the newbies
list, but i saw a similar question in the archives of this mailing
list, which did not quite answer my question.
i'm trying to install FreeBSD for the first time. i'm installing it on
the installation has gone on pretty cleanly, i have a linksys
firewall/wireless router behind which i have installed my freeBSD box.
i have good connectivity and am able to ping, telnet to the internet.
however DNS resolution is a problem.
the browser does not work and for example
dig www.freebsd.org also does not work.
if i provide the nameserver,dig @server xxx.xxx.xxx - things are fine.
any ideas. it has to be something really simple.
during the configuration, when i configured my ethernet port, it cleanly
gets the ip address from the linksys hub and also lists the nameserver
what else do i have to configure ?
