Subject:   dig works, nslookup doesn't
Date:   2003-05-29 01:05:50
From:   ausmike
Thought I'd follow along on my own machine, and got the following error message:


Lookup has started ...


*** Can't find server name for address 192.168.0.1: Non-existent host/domain
*** Default servers are not available


This is of course the IP address for my router.


When I check the "Use 'dig' in place of 'nslookup'" option it all goes through as expected.


Is this expected behavior, or is there something about my home network which is poorly configured? (I've had problems connecting to this computer from others on the network, so I wouldn't be surprised if it were the latter).
