Subject: [gentoo-user] DNS resolver doesn't

1 Hello list,
3 On two machines, I have my DSL modem set as DNS server, and it forwards to
4 my ISP's servers. This works well for external hosts. I also have "order
5 hosts, bind" in /etc/host.conf, but even though both machines have full LAN
6 host names and addresses in their /etc/hosts, every DNS lookup goes straight
7 to the modem, which of course knows nothing of the local layout.
9 What else do I have to do to make host.conf effective? Would a hammer help?
