Why can't nslookup find the domain/host name?

Why can't nslookup find the domain/host name?

Post by Bill » Wed, 03 Oct 2001 07:25:40



I have a RH 7.0 system.  It is currently on the 135.115.52 network.  I
want it to serve as the DNS server for another network I admin,
135.115.53.x

The problem is that I cannot get it to find any systems in the
135.115.53 network!  All I get is, from nslookup:

Quote:> domain=prd.nce.lucent.com

Server:  veeger.mytrek.com
Address:  135.115.52.113

*** veeger.mytrek.com can't find domain=prd.nce.lucent.com:
Non-existent host/domain

I'm sure I'm missing something but don't see it at the moment.  Any
help would be appreciated (and yes this is a private network, ie. no
connection to the outside world)

TIA

Why can't nslookup find the domain/host name?

I hate this....after a couple of tall cold-ones....I finally figured out the
problem(s).  Mostly a combination of trying to use old Bind 4 thinking with
Bind 8.x....

1. nslookup works; telnet/ftp require IP #'s (can't process host names)

Apologies if this isn't the proper group to post this question.  The
local Sun workstation does not interpret the name-form of addresses
for telnet/ftp/finger, though it is possible to telnet/ftp to the
IP number form of an internet address.  On the other hand, nslookup
works on either address form, referencing a nearby nameserver.  This
makes it impossible to run clients such as gopher or xmosaic.  

I'm not sure of the exact OS, but it appears to be a bsd flavor of
UNIX.  Any help/advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
