    Linux no longer resolving host names via PPP


    Running Redhat 6.2 using kppp for dialup.

    I have had PPP working for over 6 months and have not had any problems. All of a sudden things just quit working.

    I cannot connect to Google using www.google.com but I can if I type in 216.239.33.101.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    your ISP changed configuration.

    either automatic supplying of dns servers is not supported anymore or you have static dns servers in your /etc/resolv.conf that are not available anymore.

    just a guess...
