this is the output of what I see

[(11:31 AM)][(root@dedicated)] [(~)] $ wget ftp://ftp.ensim.com/download/pro/linux/4.0.1/ensim37-upgrader.sh
--11:22:59--  ftp://ftp.ensim.com/download/pro/linux/4.0.1/ensim37-upgrader.sh
           => `ensim37-upgrader.sh'
Resolving ftp.ensim.com... failed: Host not found.

Hi Xtry,
Have you checked to make sure resolving is working?
What do you get if you type "host ftp.ensim.com" ?

In /etc/resolv.conf there should be a line :-
nameserver w.x.y.z

w.x.y.z is the IP address of your ISP's dns server.
It sounds like this has not been configured on your system.

> nameserver 127.0.0.1
Unless you are running a DNS on your box this wont work.

> nameserver MY-1-IP
> nameserver MY-2-IP
These are not valid. You have to specify IP addresses.

well I think its something else, that file has been like that since I got it. I have never edited that file.
I think its something else, I have Fedora with Ensim on that dedicated server. Yesterday I was
trying to get ipv6 and make some AAAA records in a site and today this happens I really dont
know whats going on.

yes xtry i give you the named for ipv6. but. the problem in here i think is you turn on bind. and the resolution try to make in your box and no in your ISP.

we need to change the resolv.conf to do that like grblade says   you need a specific IP ADDRESS

OK it sounds like your nameserver is not working in that case.
Can you try restarting it by typing "/etc/init.d/named restart" and then see if it works.

change in the resolv.conf the ip numbers

nameserver 216.88.77.7



and remove the others. this ip number is the NS server of you connection. truy restart named after that and comment.
