Question Proxy with polipo timing out


I downloaded polipo from my package manager and ran

root# polipo

and it started the service on localhost:8123.

However, If I set the proxy in firefox, or if I set

$ export http_proxy=localhost:8123
$ wget http://tukaani.org/xz/xz-file-format.txt

I will get this error:

[Leo@chessman ~]$ wget http://tukaani.org/xz/xz-file-format.txt
--2011-01-12 16:53:13-- http://tukaani.org/xz/xz-file-format.txt
Connecting to 127.0.0.1:8123... connected.
Proxy request sent, awaiting response... 504 Host tukaani.org lookup failed: Timeout
2011-01-12 16:54:27 ERROR 504: Host tukaani.org lookup failed: Timeout.
[Leo@chessman ~]$

I tried it with other sites to such as google.com, and I got the same error.

Is this a glitch in polipo?

If I set the proxy if firefox, it freezes on "Waiting for <insert-site-here>.com ..."

If lookups fail look at a name resolution problem first. If you run 'host linuxquestions.org; dig any linuxquestions.org' in a terminal window what does it return? Does your /etc/resolv.conf contents match what you expect (usually your ISP's DNS servers or your own caching name server)? If you use DHCP on the host does your DHCP client overwrite the files' contents with "nameserver localhost"?
