I've setup a Centos 5.4 (x86_64) box in a VM recently; the trouble is I just can't get internet to work on it.
Pinging the resolved google.com ips, nameserver ips works fine but DNS lookup queries don't.
Here's some of the digging around that I did:
dig google.com ; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5 <<>> google.com ;; global options: printcmd ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached nslookup google.com ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
I didn't observe any UDP/TCP packets during dig and nslookup either
cat /etc/resolv.conf ; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script nameserver 126.96.36.199 nameserver 188.8.131.52
Also my /etc/nsswitch.conf is in order and contains the "hosts: files dns"
What could be wrong?
