Okay, I am stumped by this issue. I am a sys op, but I have not had to make this Microsoft-to-Linux crossover before.
I have a SuSE x64 box running 11.0. The box connects and pulls its IP and DNS’s via DHCP. That works well. The company has an autoconfig proxy in the format of ba.setpac.kxxx.rr.com/pac.pac.
I downloaded the script from http://ba.setpac.kxxx.rr.com/pac.pac, opened it with Kate, and pulled an address. I input that address into the Yast Proxy. I then told Firefox to use the System Proxy. I can access the internet just fine.
I cannot use Thunderbird, ntpdate, wget, ping, or any other Konsole command because they do not find the nameserver. I cat the /etc/resolv.conf and the DNS are correctly listed. I can also successfully ping them. However, if I use nslookup and a text address, no luck.
I know that I am doing something wrong, I just do not know what. Can anyone help?
