Forgive me if I am dense. According to the readout of "ssh -vvv gateway"
the connection is made immediately. Does that not indicate that it knew
where to go?
The contents of "/etc/resolv.conf" on all of my systems is the same:
[frankie] ~> cat /etc/resolv.conf
I even commented out the other 2 and tried each nameserver one at a time
and it was able to resolve www.freebsd.org
Am I looking in the wrong place?
Again, if I am ignorant, please excuse me. Perhaps, point me to a document.
Thanks to all who responded
