http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi Friends, I am using Fedora 16 32+ bit distro. How do I check if my dns service is working or not? I tried the following command based on my very little knowledge of network things. Below is the output to a few commands. Thanks. I use a router to connect my pc via LAN and a laptop via wireless. Code: [root@localhost john]# ping PING ( 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=0.606 ms 64 bytes from icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.579 ms 64 bytes from icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=0.568 ms 64 byte (HowTos)
