RE: Cannot ping server name on remote side of WAN



Hello

Our resolv.conf seems ok.  It has the following lines:

	domain ruclaservices.local
	search ruclaservices.local
	nameserver 192.168.0.1



When we run nslookup on a Windows PC on the remote side, we get the
following results:

> nslookup rs-svr1.ruclaservices.local

	Server:  rs-svr1.ruclaservices.local
	Address:  192.168.0.1

	Name:    rs-svr1.ruclaservices.local
	Address:  192.168.0.1


> nslookup rs-svr1

	Server:  rs-svr1.ruclaservices.local
	Address:  192.168.0.1

	*** rs-svr1.ruclaservices.local can't find rs-svr1: Non-existent
domain
