Is there a way to prevent DNS lookups?
Posted on 2011-03-14
I have a system that a previous administrator "disabled" internet access on. Now we want it to have internet access, but I can't figure out how they did it. Here are the symptoms:
PC is configured for DHCP and receives an IP address and correct DNS entries.
PC can ping and tracert to any IP address.
PC cannot ping or trace to an external hostname: "could not find host XXXX"
PC can use nslookup to resolve domain names.
I'm thinking there is a registry key or some connection specific setting that was changed to prevent this. I can't figure out what is causing this issue.
