Description icleland 1999-03-11 16:11:20 UTC
i am having a problem with the internet, and could possibly
be a configuration problem.

i configured bind as per the howto dns and also as the book
dns % bind.

when i do a nslookup it will only go as far as the sites
name server e.g.

and return answers for the query

if i try it cannot find it.

is there a bug in bind or nslookup or am i stupid.`

i even tried bind-8.1.2-6 and am considering trying bind 4

Unfortunately, this sounds like a configuration problem.  We cannot
reproduce this problem locally.
