Use DIG! Much better than nslookup!

unstable# dig ibm.com

(p.s. You really should cross-post, it's not polite!)

*
*
*
* Hi,
*
* Here's a problem, say I am using nslookup to look for
* ibm.net, but when I
* do that, I will get ibm.net.cs.earlham.edu instead on ibm.net
* by itself,
* or non existence domain...etc. At the beginning it seems to
* be a missing
* period problem, but I assure you it's not. A friend of mine fixed it
* temporarly if she adds nslookup -nosea , and everything goes
* fine, but if
* someone is using us as a nameserver, that will not help. I
* was wondering
* if there are some ways to solve or debug this problem.
*
* Thanks,
* Hassan
