I have a small linux server with ensim on it. We did an ensim upgrade and got a new block of Ips from Qwest. Qwest and Ensim now say that the other is at fault because of the following problem -

I can not resolve any domain from 71.39.90.129 server.

$host www.google.com
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

When i am looking in /etc/resolv.conf i see this:

$cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 205.171.2.65
nameserver 205.171.3.65


So i am pinging the first nameserver and i see this:

$ping 205.171.2.65
PING 205.171.2.65 (205.171.2.65) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 205.171.2.65: icmp_seq=0 ttl=59 time=32.1 ms
64 bytes from 205.171.2.65: icmp_seq=1 ttl=59 time=30.9 ms
64 bytes from 205.171.2.65: icmp_seq=2 ttl=59 time=30.8 ms

So the connection is good. But if i am trying to resolve a domain through it, this is what i see:

$dig @205.171.2.65 google.com

; <<>> DiG 9.2.2-P3 <<>> @205.171.2.65 google.com
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

Anyone have any ideas?????? Neither will proceed because they blame the other.

Just because you can ping those name servers (you can ping any ip address right now, try it: 216.239.57.99 = google.com) does not mean that those are the name servers you need to use.

I would suggest you run dhcpcd (or if you don't have that, dhclient).

Are these static IP addresses you have? If so, your ISP should have given you new DNS servers to use as well. (and you should probably set up eth0 to be static)
