Allright, I finialy got it to work. Here I am, finialy with DNS settings working..
for anyone who ever needs a reference here they are:
hostname.interface (ie hostname.elxl0)
<add your ip to this document>
add your local machine name
your router/gateway usualy xxx.xxx.subnet.1
this is a table of
127.0.0.1 localhost loghost
add to hosts: dns files
add the dns part
add to recolv.conf:
domain: your.domain (ie uri.edu)
nameserver: <NameServer IP>
I hope this helps someone out in the future..
All of these files are found in
