Full Version: Hostname problem WinXP-OZ 3.5.1
OESF Forums > General Forums > Desktop Operating Systems Issues > Windows Issues
I'm having a problem with an internet connection with OZ 3.5.1 via a Win XP box. I have Internet connection sharing set, with a on the desktop's Ethernet interface, on the desktop's USB interface, and on the Z's USB interface. The gateway is From the Z, I can ping the WinXP box. I can ping the gateway. I can even ping the internet by IP address (so I assume routing is all correct).

What I can't do is get and DNS queries to work. When I try to ping, I get a "hostname lookup failure." Given that I can even ping the DNS server (I have the gateway configured as the first one under the Network app, and the actual Internet DNS server as the second), I figure I must be doing something else wrong. I noticed that I don't have an /etc/resolv.conf file--how does OZ handle domain resolution (i.e., how does the resolvconf package work)?

TIA. . .

This file needs to be created iirc; its omission is a mistake.

And its format is

replace with your dns server (you can find it by clicking on your network connection in XP and viewing status then details - something like that, it's easy to find anyway)
