I am not a user of the mailing list as I never seemed to have a problem
with squid before until now...

Can any replies be mailed to me.... thanks for any help given.

I never had this problem with squid-1.1.8 but now if I reinstall 1.1.8 this
problem still persists.

The problem?

The squid server works fine no problem... but fails on DNS test so I
disabled these tests, and everything starts up fine. BUT I can not gain
access to any
web pages using the cache if I specify the address (eg. www.come.net.uk)
but works fine with IP number (eg

SO I looked at the errors generated and they all stem from dnsserver which
only likes IP numbers as input and not registered InterNic domain names.
Is this a design feature???

Any one had similar problem???

Changes to the host system: upgrade from FreeBSD 2.2 to FreeBSD 2.2.1
So this could be a problem but none that are obvious as ping/nslookup, etc
works as usual and I seem to have no other network problem.

Thanks for any help...
