DNS and Q4?

Hello All,

I have my Q4 machine hooked up to the internet now and can ping IPs on the
internet. Now I want to be able to ping names also. For instance, qnx.com
instead of the IP for qnx.com.

I have the IPs of the DNS servers that the cable modem uses. How hard is it
to set up DNS and use these servers?

TIA,

Jim

If you are using TCP/IP 4.25 then check out resolv.conf in the online help
manual. Then entries that you are interested in are nameserver

Here is an example of the /etc/resolv.conf:

#===================================================

/etc/resolv.conf

#===================================================

use host lookup first, then name server

lookup file bind

name servers

nameserver XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
nameserver YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
#====================================================
