|Does anyone know the IP addresses of Etisalats DNS machines. I don't get any provided by DHCP - so i end up with 'domain.invalid'. It seems this is really slowing up my look ups.|
|http://www.dnsstuff.com are you behind a firewall dude|
|Just tried without the firewall - but no difference. The dnsstuff will be help me get an IP of a dns entry, but i can't do manual look ups each time i want to access a site i have never been to before. The Big E should have there own DNS servers which then in turn hook up all the way up to the root dns machines. Thanks for your help by the way :)|

|ok try this 1- disable the firewall on your computer 2- go to this site "www.traceroute.org" and choose a location like the US 3- Put the ip of your gateway (remember to put your public IP address like 217.x.x.x) 4- Then you can see if the ping can reach your ip address call etisalat and send them the trace and at the same time check with them.
