The 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 entries are probably not what you want unless the route to these subnets should still be out eth0 (the 188.8.131.52 NIC). My take on your original posting was the eth0 was no longer in use.route Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1 169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth1 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 255.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 255.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 126.96.36.199 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0 default 192.168.2.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1NXDOMAIN is dig's way of saying it can't find an IP address for internal.coxagri.com. See if you can get this boxes name and IP address to resolve through dig.

DaveThanks for the insight - I'm working on it over the weekend when everyone has gone home.
The public ip from this address is an ADSL link name rather than internal.coxagri.com
Having had a quick look at other people in the same scenario I have some reading to do. If you have any suggestions I'd be happy to hear them.
