RE: DNS



I'm running a firewall (fwbuilder) on this box. I changed some
setting as guided by another reply to my problem which made my
machine think it was a nameserver with 127.0.0.1 to resolve web
names but it didn't work. I think the firewall is causing a problem
as I have two net cards one for internal net and one for ext, any
nslookup request seems to come back with my isp's primary dns they
supplied me with. 

Any comments?
