I'm trying to do something I thought would be pretty simple.
192.168.0.1 using my registrar's DNS server.(namecheap.com)
I've added an A Record for
local with value of
trying to lookup
local.mydomain.com using websites like just-dnslookup.com returns the proper IP address. but trying to
nslookup in windows results in these errors.
Ping request could not find host local.mydomain.com. Please check the name and try again.
No internal type for both IPv4 and IPv6 Addresses (A+AAAA) records available for local.mydomain.com.
changing the ip address for the a record to a non-private ip (eg.
188.8.131.52) fixes the lookup issue.
I'm suspecting windows doesn't like the fact that a local ip is returned by the DNS server?
