name to ip resolution is not working .. Strange Scenario ...
I am using debian and net is connected to this debian system and it is shared. I have a user account in this machine, which i use for my daytoday works. But today when i login as user i am not able to browse internet using firefox or any other browser (elinks also). But the hosts (net is shared from this system) are getting internet without any problem. I checked my resolv.conf .. it is fine. I flushed all my iptables including nat. The condition is the same.
This is the output after turning of firewall,
