@harrymc: That is already the case. I only have dnsmasq-base installed.

comment ping can't resolve hostname, but nslookup can
@harrymc: I didn't install it. I just installed Kubuntu. I was surprised to find dnsmasq on my system and I know nothing about it. On my system, NetworkManager starts the process.

comment ping can't resolve hostname, but nslookup can
@DavidSchwartz: It's a local/internal name (ie. something that only our internal DNS server knows about). I could imaging that web browser use special DNS lookup code but how can the command line tools ping and nslookup disagree?

@JdeBP: I'm using a proxy.pac that returns DIRECT for this URL. But it never gets so far; all the programs already fail to resolve the host name (no matter whether I configure to use a proxy or not).

comment ping can't resolve hostname, but nslookup can
@DavidSchwartz: I'm expecting resolution to work. What I don't understand how nslookup or host can resolve the name and anything else on the system can't.
