9/25    What's a nslookup equivalent to look up "set type=all"? I don't
        have nslookup anymore.
        \_ I think nslookup is deprecated and you're supposed to be using
           dig and host now.  Do you want the equiv 'host' acommand?
           \_ is it host -av <host>?

9/7     Dear Linux DNS experts, how do you find out if a domain has
        published SPF records? Is there a magic command like hostname,
        nslookup, etc that does this? I'm a UNIX noob. Thanks!
        \_  host -t txt $DOMAINNAME     -ERic

8/10    I've been getting the following message
            nslookup: Can't open nslookup: No such file or directory
        dozens of times in my .procmailrc log file since the new disk was
        installed.  All mail seems to be delivered fine.  Anyone have
        any ideas what this is about?

1/13    I need help fixing someone's Win2K box.  Setup:  Win2K box -> D-Link
        router -> DSL modem.  The Win2K box cannot obtain a DHCP address
        (other computers can).  So, I assign a static IP, and set the default
        gateway and DNS server to be the D-Link router.  After this, the Win2K
        box can access web pages on the Internet as long as you specify the
        web site IP address directly -- but DNS doesn't work.  Computer used

12/18   How do I find soda's IP address?  More specifically, if I want to
        give out my email address as <login>@IP_address, how would I do it?
        \_ host
           Why would you want to give that out as an email address?
           It would be very ill-advised. IP addresses change.

4/8     If I set up a BIND nameserver for a domain that doesn't exist yet,
        and I use this nameserver in nslookup to query hostnames from
        this domain, will the nameserver recognize that it's (configured to be)
        authoritative for that domain and reply directly, or will it try
        to start from the root servers and work its way down (thus not
        succeeding in finding itself)? Thanks.

1/15    What is do?  Zoen alarm says I have traffic coming from, and nslookup says the Name is:   Does the traffic really come from the
        12.* address or the 211.* address?
        \_ 12.*.  in-addr-arpa is reverse lookup, and it's configured
           from right to left.  'in' stands for 'inverse', I think.  -John

12/13   Hmm, I can't get out to from work by name, but i can get out
        by IP. dns lookups on all other sites seem to work ok. it works from
        soda. any ideas on what is wrong?

11/5    How do I find out who "owns" a specific IP address when it doesn't
        resolve with nslookup? ie. There's a host down, and I want to
        report the outage to the appropriate company.
        \_ whois -a address (substitute -e or -p for non-US addresses)

11/6    What's the easiest way to resolve a name to an IP on a machine
        that doesn't have bind. Is there a shell function?
        \_ ping
        \_ nslookup?
        \_ many os's have "host", but ping is probably most universal.

10/21   Is this a DNS or an ARP problem? Is there
        any easy way to clear the arp entry (-d doesn't wrok because there
        is no entry).
