gateway changing the IP address??

Hello all,

I am coming across a strange error with my gateway. When I do a “ping”, this is what I get below:

k-63a5b848c6cb4:~ # ping simba
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from k-63a5b848c6cb4 ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.041 ms
64 bytes from k-63a5b848c6cb4 ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.029 ms
64 bytes from k-63a5b848c6cb4 ( icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.023 ms
64 bytes from k-63a5b848c6cb4 ( icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.015 ms

Does anyone know what the problem could be? Is the gateway doing something strange?


It’s not changing address, just changing the reverse mapped domain name. Do you have two nameservers listed in /etc/resolv.conf. Or two sources for name resolution? If so perhaps you are getting your answer from one, then the other. If only one, then perhaps the nameserver itself (the modem/router) is changing the reply.

Have a look at what’s in /etc/hosts and use dig -x to see what the DNS server does.
