1.2.3 and DNS



  • So I needed to run some test and be able to setup an override forward to an internal server on my flat network (on the same subnet).  No domains.

    For a while, it didn't appear that things were working.  My quick test was to try and PING the hostname.domain.

    Just by pure accident, I started one of these PINGs and then went off working on something else.  I noticed that it started replying…when I really hadn't changed anything.
    After a few tests, here's what I'm seeing.

    If I just PING hostname, instant response.
    If I PING hostname.domain, it takes right at 15 sec. before I start seeing replies.

    Is there any reason I should expect this behavior to be normal?



  • @ck42:

    If I just PING hostname, instant response.
    If I PING hostname.domain, it takes right at 15 sec. before I start seeing replies.

    That sounds like the look-up for hostname.domain is being routed to a DNS server, that cannot be reached, and so is timing out.

    Cheers.
