Re: DNS on iSeries issue



fixed

What do you mean by "could not get to www.creativelyspeaking.com"?  Just 
trying to see how your i5 plays in this picture.  For example, if you were 
trying to browse their web site from your PC then your i5 does nothing 
UNLESS, you put in the IP address of your i5 into "Use the following DNS 
server addresses".  Then you're toast UNLESS you configured your i5 to be 
a DNS server.

If your email service on your i5 was unable to get to 
www.creativelyspeaking.com it could be any number of items.
1-Nobody uses the www in an email address.
2-Try pinging www.creativelyspeaking.com from your i5.  Granted they may 
block pings, but at least you should get DNS resolution.  For example
ping www.creativelyspeaking.com 
Verifying connection to host system WWW.CREATIVELYSPEAKING.C at address
  208.56.149.83. 
No response from host within 1 seconds for connection verification 1. 
No response from host within 1 seconds for connection verification 2. 
No response from host within 1 seconds for connection verification 3. 
No response from host within 1 seconds for connection verification 4. 
No response from host within 1 seconds for connection verification 5. 
Connection verification statistics: 0 of 5 successful (0 %). 
This could mean several things
a - I did get DNS resolution to 208.56.149.83.  This is a good sign.
b - I couldn't ping them.  Although I DID get DNS resolution either they 
are down, or they block pings.
