There is the file /etc/resolv.conf. Put your DNS-Server there.

You'll have to edit /etc/resolve.conf,
adding your DNS servers.

  search <your.own.domainname>
  nameserver <xxx.zzz.vvv.ddd>
  nameserver <zzz.xxx.nnn.fff> # secondary DNS server

Hi,

I've installed RH6 on my PC. No problem !
I've decided to use KDE graphic interface and I want to surf on the net with
Netscape. But I've a problem with the DNS. I can't surf when I write the
real domain name but only when I wrote it with number.

Is anyone can help me.

Thanks in advance

Windows machines can obtain the DNS servers from the ISP during the handshaking
process. Linux does not do this and you have to tell the name resolver where the
DNS is. Look through the documentation that came with your ISP account for the
nameserver. If it is not present, then you may have to ring them up to determine
it.

This isn't exactly true. Linux has DHCP support which allows it to receive
DNS server IPs and other information when it connects to the DHCP server.

1. Problems with Netscape and FTP - DNS problem?

I have a lan with two pc, connected directly via network cards:
192.168.0.1 (PC with Windows 98 SE with modem, with internet connection)
192.168.0.2 (PC with Linux Mandrake 7.02 Air, that have internet acess
through windows box (windows box as gateaway).

Network setup was made following the instructions in
http://www.mandrakeuser.org/connect/cmlan.html

FTP server (wu-ftpd) setup was made following the instructions in
http://linux.nf/ftpserver.htm

When Windows box is not connected to the internet, there are two
problems:

1. Netscape take a long time to open the mandrake local document (I have
changed to start with blank page, but it still open mandrake welcome
document)

2. Making FTP to localhost (using gFTP or IglooFTP) it take a long
timeto login.

When Windows box is connected to the internet (via dial up modem)
everything is fine.

What can be wrong? Please... help me!!!! ;)

Here is some configuration files I have:

Windows box: ringo
Linux box: john

/etc/hosts

127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost       # 0
192.168.0.2     john # 0
