Default Centos 5.4 DNS resolution issue

I can ping the google.com ip addresses (209.85.231.104) but can't ping the FQDN, obviously DNS is broken.

I can also ping the nameserver ip addresses specified in /etc/resolv.conf.

Hi Everyone,

I've setup a Centos 5.4 (x86_64) box in a VM recently; the trouble is I just can't get internet to work on it.


Pinging the resolved google.com ips, nameserver ips works fine but DNS lookup queries don't.


Here's some of the digging around that I did:

dig google.com


; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5 <<>> google.com


;; global options: *printcmd


;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached



nslookup google.com


;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached



I didn't observe any UDP/TCP packets during dig and nslookup either

cat /etc/resolv.conf


; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script


nameserver 208.67.220.220


nameserver 208.67.222.222



Also my /etc/nsswitch.conf is in order and contains the "hosts: files dns" entry.



What could be wrong?

Gaurav

Just a thought: why don't you try google nameserver 8.8.8.8 in
resolv.conf as the only server.

well, the DNS servers given by your resolv.conf output seem valid from
here.. I recommend doing some more debugging with `host` or similar DNS
diagnostic tools.

note regular DNS lookups like these tend to use UDP rather than TCP, if
you're behind a NAT firewall which doesn't allow outbound udp port 53
and connection track the response, then things might not work well.

Default Centos 5.4 DNS resolution issue

I tried everything you put forward, but didn't work.
I had openSUSE 11.1 installed in a VM as well, DNS worked fine with it.

Default Centos 5.4 DNS resolution issue

UPDATE:
I tried with FreeBSD8 as well and the DNS query didn't work. This is beginning to look more and more like an issue with my*UTStarcom*WA3002G4 ADSL2+ Router and its NAT config or the lack of it.


My setup and the ip addresses:

Router * * * * 192.168.1.1Windows * * *192.168.1.2

Centos 5.4 * 192.168.1.3

FreeBSD8 * *192.168.1.4




The windows host works fine with no issues with DNS queries.

Gaurav

Hey do this for me since nothing seems to work. Log into your DSL
Modem/Router and get your DNS server IP Addresses and put them into:
resolve.conf
nameserver x.x.x.x
nameserver x.x.x.x

I have had certain router/modems that i have installed and have had to
do this because dhcp would not get the nameservers.
