Hi Douglas, 

If you are using dns relay on your gateway why would you want to use named ?
Also, it might be an idea to put the dns server ( i.e. the gateway) in your
resolv.conf. Furthermore, neither your hosts ip4 ip (192.168.3.1) nor your
non existant ip6 ip (:::) should be able to be resolved, unless you've set
this up specifically yourself. In short, your 'error' message is more
message than error. 

Regards, 
Ruben

Subject: nslookup strangeness

I was using nslookup because of its convenient syntax to do some stuff. My
workstation communicates via a gateway which also severs as its name server.
I
get the following:

   nslookup
*** Can't find server name for address 192.168.3.1: Non-existent host/domain
*** Can't find server name for address ::: No response from server
*** Default servers are not available

However dig works fine as does "regular" use of DNS.

/etc/resolv.conf: nameserver 192.168.3.1

I started and stopped named and was able to use nslookup for a while.

My question for the list is where I might look to find an indication of the
error. there is nothing in /var/log/messages or all.log. Sockstat shows
named
listening on 192.168.3.1. Except for an occasional abnormally long response
using ssh DNS also works normally.

Thanks for any ideas.
