I have a very similar setup, using FC4, ISPCONFIG and a few other bits and pieces.
All seems to be working ok until I try to do any networking stuff locally???
So, I have completed some of my own investigations. The following is a quick summary of my findings. If anyone out there can help, please do...
Logged in locally as root: -
# ping www.google.com
ping: unknown host www.google.com
(no response at all)
# nslookup www.google.com
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached.
Ok, so there is a problem with DNS.
The really wierd thing is that THIS server is my intranet DNS server and it is providing results to all other LAN machines.
On a desktop machine on same LAN (win 2K)
c:\> ping www.google.com

Just to prove this to myself, I stopped the DNS server and tried the DOS ping again and it failed. Proving that my DNS server is working!!! But not when I'm logged in locally to the DNS server???
So DNS is working ok on the linux box, but when logged in locally DNS is not working.
Am I missing something? Obviously I am, but what I cannot find!!!
Thanks in advance.
