View Full Version : [ubuntu] Minor DNS problem

May 3rd, 2010, 12:46 AM

I have configured DNS on ubuntu server 8.10 and it is working fine. There is one question I have though. Everytime I ping a LAN device by name I get the reply from the server with only the IP Address.

What is wrong in my bind config to cause this?

charles@thor:~$ ping router

It's normal.

Hi Charles

Thanks for that. I wasn't sure about it as I saw from pings the name is normally returned. But at least you've put my mind at ease.

Thanks muchly
