http://ubuntuforums.org – Can anyone tell me why my dig command shows my loopback address as my DNS? I've recently put a local DNS on my other ubuntu machine and have pointed this computer to use it, but it doesn't seem to want to play ball. I expected the server to read 192.168.1.2 not 127.0.0.1: Code: jacobroecker@MooseFlix:~$ dig mothballs.com ; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> mothballs.com ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 20111 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0 ;; QUESTION SECT (Hardware)
