Strange DNS issue!


I have a remote server which was working just fine. 2 days ago, I ran yum update and it gave me repomd.xml. I figured out that my server is not resolving any URL. I tried wget and nslookup.

[root@ns1 ~]# nslookup
> server
Default server: 64.251.14.37
Address: 64.251.14.37#53
Default server: 202.147.184.7
Address: 202.147.184.7#53
Default server: 69.60.125.253
Address: 69.60.125.253#53
> cnn.com
Server: 202.147.184.7
Address: 202.147.184.7#53

Non-authoritative answer:
*** Can't find cnn.com: No answer

I get these errors. I even rebooted the machine bot to no use. Anyone knows any fix for that.

It is generally considered a bad idea to include your real IP addresses in any public forum.

Have you checked your routing?
Code:
> /sbin/route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
192.168.1.0     *               255.255.255.0   U     0      0        0 eth0
127.0.0.0       *               255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
default         192.168.1.1     0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 eth0
Notice the generic addresses that I put into the example.
