View Full Version : [ubuntu] Issues resolveing certain sites on one PC

February 5th, 2013, 09:27 PM
I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 on two different machines. One of them can access any sites apart from those on my new hosting provider.

I've tried installing and restarting nscd, checked that /etc/resolv.conf seems OK, there is no customisation to /etc/hosts

Both computers use the same DNS servers (although I have tried changing the DNS on the machine having problems to use OpenDNS, which as I though had no effect at all.)

Apart from the fact that I've moved hosting providers recently, they have also moved me on to a different server (I was on server85, I'm now on server69)

server85 seems to have been cached somewhere, (My cpanel login redirects me here, when it should start s69)

However, a ping of my domain name points correctly to 69

I've tried running

find / -xdev -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -H "s85."

but nothing is listed.

Scratching my head as to why only one machine is affected, and only on my new hosts and yet it can be pinged ok (Also, a windows VM with a bridged NIC adaptor is all working fine on the Ubuntu box having trouble)
