Default one website gives "address not found" from LAN

<adam.ant@cyberspaceroad.com> shared this with us all:


I'm mystified by this error on one website http://www.trade2win.com/

error= Address not found

All other websites can be browsed fine - at least I can browse
everything OK and send and receive emails. The machine's a gateway
server and runs iptables but I've checked that it makes no difference
by downing the iptables rules and trying with masquerading only.

I can browse the website happily from my mobile phone. I can't work
out what it might be. Here's a couple of error msgs I saw:

www.trade2win.com: Name or service not known
Cannot handle "host" cmdline arg `www.trade2win.com' on position 1
(argc 1) adam@isengard:~/junk$ traceroute http://www.trade2win.com/

Host www.trade2win.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
adam@isengard:~/junk$ host 208.43.120.229
229.120.43.208.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer sfarm1.com.

This last ip address is that of trad2win.com (not working).


Hi Folks
thanks for the advice - I do know the website is running fine out there - I just
can't access it from my LAN. From my mobile phone, fine. But not from my lan.


And those are the outputs from useful cmds above but I can't see any problem.

Thanks
Adam

You've checked all the usual suspects, right? Iptables, the etc/hosts
file, your DNS provider(s), any "nanny" or "anti-phishing" programs
running, and so on?

Well I dropped all the rules from iptables and that made no difference.

What would be in /etc/hosts that might cause problems with this one site (I
visit 25 or so sites everyday)?


Just got this:

127.0.0.1 localhost isengard.localdomain isengard
192.168.0.2 isengard.localdomain

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

Truth be told I can't remember what inspired me to put those IPv6 lines in there
but I assume they are beneficial


What should I be checking out as far as the DNS provider is concerned?

As for other programs that might affect it, no I don't think there are any.

One of the previous replies mentioned:

By the way, it seems the domain name has not defined an alias for "www"
so when you query for it, it cannot resolve:


sm01@stt008:~$ host www.trade2win.com
Host www.trade2win.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)


So that could be contributing but I don't know why just my connection is affected.

Regards
Adam

Thanks
Adam

That works for me:

$ host www.trade2win.com
www.trade2win.com CNAME panna-229.trade2win.com
panna-229.trade2win.com A 208.43.120.229

Try if you can resolve the name using another nameserver, for example:

host www.trade2win.com 4.2.2.1

If that works then you have a problem with your standard nameserver and
we need to see the contents of your /etc/resolv.conf.

Now yes. It works here, too:

sm01@stt008:~/Desktop$ host www.trade2win.com
www.trade2win.com is an alias for panna-229.trade2win.com.
panna-229.trade2win.com has address 208.43.120.229
panna-229.trade2win.com is an alias for panna-229.trade2win.com.
panna-229.trade2win.com is an alias for panna-229.trade2win.com.

What is the output of the following commands?

***
host trade2win.com
traceroute trade2win.com

All your tests *are right*.

If you are still unable to browse to that webpage, try with an online
proxy:

http://proxify.co.uk/

(in the input field, type the URL of the page and click "Proxify")

This is made worse by the fact that the problem is only intermittent. For the
last 24 hours it has been ok.

failure at my DNS at 194.74.65.68 to discover panna-229.trade2win.com and the
failure at 4.2.2.1 to find panna-229.trade2win.com - and the intermittent
nature of the problem.


Can I legitimately hassle my service provider about this? Or is it my fault?
Could it be something to do with my firewall, like ICMP?


Thanks
Adam
