Basically I issue a query (Type: PTR) from my client for the following
In response to that query, I get back
Reply code: No such name (3)
3 Name Error - Meaningful only for responses from an authoritative name server, this code signifies that the domain name referenced in the query does not exist.
However when I am on my client the domain name does resolve to the correct ip address and I can ping without issue
[root@client/]# ping gv.com PING gv.com (192.168.10.10) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from gv.com (192.168.10.10): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.308 ms 64 bytes from gv.com (192.168.10.10): icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.329 ms 64 bytes from gv.com (192.168.10.10): icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.330 ms 64 bytes from gv.com (192.168.10.10): icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.306 ms ^C --- gv.com ping statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3004ms
Why does the DNS response give me the reply code 3 when the domain name resolves for my client?
Could it be that the error occurs because the service I am looking for does not exist in the DNS server?
