[ubuntu] Lan dns

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, Having just scanned loads of other posts, I can't find one that addresses this name resolution issue of mine. I have a NAS server running Debian with Dnsmasq (local DNS and DHCP service). This is working well, including fetching upstream requests from my ISP's DNS service and caching them locally. I have another PC not running Ubuntu which happily resolves DNS and non-DNS names. E.g. Code: ping hagrid. ping hagrid both work. However, this is not the case on my Ubuntu PC. It is only able to resolve DNS names, not non-DNS names. Code: ping hagrid. works but Code: ping hagrid does not. I have the standard nsswitch.conf and host.conf. Can anyone help me put right my client PC problem? TIA, Rick (HowTos)
