if no DNS in /etc/resolve.conf then???


i got some problem regarding the DNS while i was using dial up
but the amazing thing is the DNS only have to translate the domain names to their IP but
i cannot ping or tracedrout or open any web page using the IP of yahoo or hotmail
although if u use IP in any of the application ping ...traceroute...http?? it bypass the DNS ..i mean it skips the DNS if u use the ip??
so then wts the reason for not doing any thing using IP nor domain name????

I'm not exactly certain what you're asking, but if you've got no DNS information in your /etc/resolve.conf file, you should add it there:

domain <dns server name>
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the primary and secondary DNS server. When you put in the "<dns server name>", be sure to put in the correct name without the <> in there. Hope this helps some.

so you ar eunable to ping ANY ip's, or just yahoo and hotmail. Are you on the same PC you made this post with?

If you cannot ping the IP, then it is probably a firewall or, you are not online.

Okay, is your /etc/resolv.conf file empty or what?
