Hi !

I have got a strange problem.

I get every evening a file from a ftp server.
Since few days, I cannot retrieve this file because of the following error :

ftp.server.com: unknown host or invalid literal address

But I don't get this error message any time.
Sometimes my ftp command works !!!

I have replace the name by the IP address and now no problem!

My computer is a linux, the /etc/resolv.conf has two lines
with the good nameserver.

I don't if the problem is on my computer or at the DNS sever level.

Best regards.
