Re: [PLUG] dig returns "Transfer failed", what to do?

that would be true if the hosts have a 1-1 mapping between
the names and the IP's (and if the reverse mapping works
correctly).  all yur going to get here is the canonical
names...consider my hosts:

localhost.localdomain[4]% host hagibis.madugas.org
hagibis.madugas.org has address
localhost.localdomain[5]% host darna.madugas.org
darna.madugas.org has address

you wont get these hostnames if you knew just the
IP numbers.
