please help, when trying to use nslookup on my gauntlet(sun-ux) firewall,
its default server is pointed to an internal HP-ux box. however I get this

bash-2.02# nslookup

*** Can't find server name for address Server failed

*** Default servers are not available

my question is where on my sun box do I configure where do I need to edit
for nslookup to go somewhere else. any help would be greatly appreciated.

also I get this error on my firewall logs. the from is my internal dns box,
going to the inside interface of my firewall. does anyone know how to
eliminate this. I am running bind 8.3

thanks for your help
