Either you don't have correct entries in the nameserver, or your
/etc/resolv.conf on gc-infra is not using 192.168.0.29 as it's
What is the output of nslookup on gc-infra when you key in
the bettchen.steenbuck.net name? What is it when you issue
a "set type=mx" at the nslookup prompt followed by the
bettchen.steenbuck.net name? What is it when you key in the
IP number 192.168.0.29?
