After setting up DNS server, normal DNS query wouldn't work

Hi everyone.
I'm new to Opensuse, and recently trying to set up a DNS server though

I run Opensuse 11.3 +XP under virtualbox(bridged network)
On the first day I started DNS server, everything worked very well, in
both virtual machine and opensuse, I could browse any webpages.
But today something strange happened... in xp virtual machin,
everything works just fine, no any problems, but in Opensuse, DNS server
was running, but I just couldn't browse any webpages, I'm sure that's
DNS's problem, because I could ping an external IP address but couldn't
ping an URL.

I use ifup to manage network connections.
Could anyone please help me with this problem?

Thanks a lot!

look in /etc/reslov.conf - at the bottom are there 
any 'nameserver' entries

If not go to yast and re-do the network setup bit again

I have noticed that adding a dns server to a machine
has odd consequences

Normally machines don't have a DNS server running locally, so will
naturally query a specified remote DNS Server (normally assigned through

If you install a local DNS Server, it typically become authoritative
for all queries, specifying additional DNs Servers in your network
properties only has problematic success. At the very least you may need
to add "localhost" to your DNS resolver list, but "that depends" on the

The solution is to configure your DNS Server with Forwarders so that if
the local DNS Server doesn't have the results in cache, the query will
be forwarded to another machine. Note that this can involve significant
latency, sometimes requiring multiple manual attempts.

Bottom line, it's usually not a good idea to deploy a DNS server on a
system with running applications and logged on Users.

grep "named" /var/log/messages | tail

You would be looking to see if the DNS software is logging errors, and
failing to start.

DNS forwarding to 'unknown' DNS server/
We are netware 5.1. I have 2 DNS server, both are configured with a forward address. On our firewall, i have seen that my dns servers are making request (sometimes) to others serves.

dns newbie : dynamic dns error (doesn't have server address)

Is limited to IP address (A-type) DNS queries?
I'd like to query some DNS-based services from a Firefox extension. There are a number of spam filters and such which create special DNS entries that can be queried. Here's a list of spam databases which can be queried via DNS: For some of these, the client needs to retrieve a DNS "TXT" record, rather than the more common "A" record. There are also situations when you might want an "MX" record, for mail. Encryption keys and reverse DNS information are also stored in DNs records. Can that infor...

Who has to set the MX ; A ; PTR records in DNS? My ISP or our company's own internal DNS server?
When I am going to enable internet addressing, things have to be changed in DNS so that the mail is routed correctly to our own GWIA's IP addres. I searched the knowledgebase how to set up things correctly but did not find all the awnsers. Here is our situation: Our GWIA is bound to say IP 63.999.999.99 Our ISP needs to know this IP address and tells me that the mailserver name will be set automatically to: "mail.OurDomainName". But are they going to do all of the work or do I have to change things in our Internal DNS server too (running on IP 192.168.1.X)? O...

Propagate DNS Settings to Other DNS Servers
My server is the Authoratitive DNS server for my domain. if the NAMED service is down, no one can resolve to my web site. It seems as if my DNS settings are not propogating to other DNS servers on the Internet to be cached there. What settings do I have to change to make this happen ? Steve -- Other DNS servers are not responsible for caching your DNS info. If they have to resolve names using your server, they may cache that info so they don't have to ask your server for it every time, but even then the caching is probably only for a short time. The only way t...

DNS benchmark sometimes triggers netbios-dns queries. Normal?
My home gateway is configured to reject outgoing connections bound for ports 135-139, as well as for port 445, and to log any such activity. Today, I reran the dns benchmark test and noticed that some of the name servers (such as those at Level3) provoked attempts to make a udp connection to port 137 (netbios-ns). I don't know that Steve's program is trying to use netbios, and it may be Windows XP's doing for some unknown reason. Only port 137 was involved. Which leads to my question: Will blocked netbios ports negatively impact the dns benchmark test somehow? It seem...
