I seem to not be able to get the IP address of a site. I am guessing its an issue with gethostbyname() and have a - at the end of the hostname...
Both mozilla and ping cannot resolve the address. However, I works just fine using Windows and IE. I am not sure if this is just a FreeBSD issue or not.
# ping mandrake-.deviantart.com
ping: cannot resolve mandrake-.deviantart.com: Unknown server error
wind# nslookup mandrake-.deviantart.com
# uname -a
FreeBSD localhost 5.1-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT #0: Tue Nov 11 13:34:21 EST 2003 david at localhost:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/WIND i386
