I have DNS lookup problems on my internal network. I'm using an internal DNS server with the IP 192.168.1.254.
If I use nslookup everything works like it should:
>hawk:~ user$ nslookup publicwebserver.domain.local >Server: 192.168.1.254 > >Address: 192.168.1.254#53 > >Name: publicwebserver.domain.local > > Address: 192.168.1.21
My problem is that no other program seems to be able to lookup the DNS name:
hawk:~ user$ ping publicwebserver.domain.local
ping: cannot resolve publicwebserver.domain.local: Unknown host
It's like this for all command line programs and e.g. Firefox. If I fire up Network Utility, I get the same problem on the Lookup tab (probably since it uses nslookup or host on the back-end).
Has any of you seen this issue before?
