Can't resolve domain name..


Hi Fellows,

For some reason I can't resolve domain names at my brand new VPS (=fedora). Anybody who is willing to help me?

This is what is in /etc/resolv.conf:
Quote:
[root@info-dolfschimmel root]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 87.233.11.14
nameserver 80.95.170.56
I don't have any idea on how to edit this file, for as far as I can see, there's no (text-)editor installed....

I did google for over 45 minutes, but was not able to find a suitable answer.


Regards,

Freakingme

no text editor? not a chance... just use vi. as for the actual problem... can you ping the name servers? can you use dig to resolve directly against them? try "dig google.com @87.233.11.14"
