I'm trying to set up my LAN with OpenDNS, and it seems that my DNS settings are being completely ignored. Even if I set my laptop (running Ubuntu) to have only the OpenDNS primary IP (and verify in resolv.conf that NetworkManager did its job) then
$ host myip.opendns.com Host myip.opendns.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
Still not using OpenDNS.
My ISP is running a transparent proxy, but that shouldn't affect DNS queries... could they be hijacking my DNS traffic somehow?
