We have a LAN of about 100 machines mainly PCs with 5 Macs running OS 10.2. The LAN is connected to the internet via a router using NAT and a hardware firewall.
The Macs cannot load www.google.ie
but can load www.google.com
, they cannot load www.apple.com
but can load www.yahoo.com
. I can ping the "problem" sites from the Macs without any problems. I've looked at the akadns (akamei) link because both google and apple provide localised services and yahoo doesn't appear to.
I connected one Mac directly to the internet via dialup and it can connect to the "problem" sites without problems.
Has anyone seen this before and know any solution?
