Not connecting to my DNS nameserver
I am using an ISP connection (dialup modem) using wvdial with REDHAT 8
I am getting assigned IP address and my routing table looks fine.
But i am nt able to browse the Internet , since the DNS lookup is failing
I have the following two entries in my /etc/resolv.conf
I am able to ping these Server IPs. Also, i tried giving an IP address of
yahoo(i found this by dialing up from windows), and my yahoo first page came up.
So, i could figure out that the routing is fine , but somehow my DNS look up is failing
Then i tried the following 'strace route' When i do this, i found the
tcp connect (... ) not succeeding on both the nameserver ips mentioned above
I also tried telnet <ip> 53 ( assuming 53 is where DNS server listens to )
Again, I also tried giving the IP address of some Public Domain Nameserver
ie 126.96.36.199 ...etc , but no luck :-(
Is there anything i am missing.?
Can someone pls help me ?
Thanks in advance
When i use the same dialup connection in Windows 98 and then using winipcfg command , i found that that the "above" DNS IP addresses are
present in DNS IP in "More info" tab
