Cool Cannot browse using website name


Friend ,

I got a strange problem . plz help..

When i browse any website like "www.yahoo.com" then i can't browse this page but if i write down the IP across the "www.yahoo.com" I can easily browse it . I don't understand what is the problem ?

Here i mention that when i run "nslookup" my DNS (Use IP and also FQDN) then i got the result of both cases . but i can't browse using WEBSITE name . plz help ....

Are the nameservers specified in /etc/resolv.conf pointing to the correct DNS servers (the same one you used nslookup on)?

typicaly missing dns case.
Check out your router config (if any), checkout the /etc/resolv.conf config
you have to use the dns adresses from your isp.

If you have your own dns, it has to be configured to "chain" it with you isp dns.

You don't 'have' to some ISP's limit any connection to those with their service, but my ISP sucks so i use others.

Either way this definatly looks like a DNS error, /etc/resolv.conf is where the settings are, either specify the DNS servers or give your ruters IP if it handles that.

i think the formatting goes like
Code:
nameserver <IP>
with 1 line per name server

i could be wrong, Google will tell.

This seems to suggest that it's not a DNS issue, altough this seems unlikely.

Can you please give some more details, for instance, the browser you're using, the exact nslookup you've done, etc?

Red face Browsing Problem

Dear timmeke ,

Actually my ISP has 10+ different big Network . My Organization is a part of this network . Another Network's member can browse but Suddenly once a time i (and also Others) feel that when i browse using "Domain Name (Like yahoo.com)" the page displays "The page cannot be displayed" . but when i use IP then i can browsing . I don't make any changes of my DNS or other servers . It just occured Suddenly . In this moment i don't understand what is the problem ? My "/etc/resolv.conf" and other DNS settings is fully Unchanged .

Is there anybody to face this type of problem ? plz share .........

Do you use any proxy server for browsing?
If the page failures are not occurring systematically, but rather every now and then, then I'd be looking
at proxy/firewall/routing setup.
