names not being resolved
Posted on 2002-05-27
I installed Red Hat 7.2 with one NIC. Everything worked fine. Installed a second NIC, and now RH won't resolve names. I can still get to the outside world if I use the IP addresses, but names don't work. eth0 is the one that's connected to the LAN (which is how it should be getting to the 'net). eth1 isn't connected to anything. When I make this my IP Masquerading box (but not right now), this or a modem will connect to the outside world. It's pinging from eth1, but still getting a response. No idea how. Anyways, I'd like to get this box to look up the domain names properly.
Seems like all this should work...
resolv.conf does have the line:
/etc/host.conf does have:
order hosts, bind
named was not running before. I turned it on in case it was needed, but that made no difference.
10.0.0.1 is the computer that they all talk to to connect to the outside world. Am I missing something? I've looked at a couple books and there isn't anything in there that I appear to be missing. If I take out the second NIC, then everything works properly. Why would that be messing things up? Can someone get this working and tell me why it wasn't? I think there's something really simple that I don't have, I just don't know what it is. ttyl,
