I have the unfortunate problem of being on the other end of an ISP
(no dedicated link for meeeeeeee), so naturally I have a nameserver
set up to deal with all the necessary resolutions (localhost,
ISP router, ISP nameserver, and both ends of my PPP link) locally.
My resolv.conf file looks like this:
lookup file bind
Yet every time I do:
% telnet 127.0.0.1
% telnet localhost
% telnet starwolf.starwolf.com
% telnet starwolf
[all of which should resolve locally!], I hear my modem dial out and try
to connect with my ISP.
Yes, I'm running named, and yes, I have a localhost definition as well
as a reverse definition. Why is it insisting on looking elsewhere for
those definitions which should resolve to localhost?
nslookup works without a hitch, BTW. What's up with this?
If you need any further files, let me know...
