Yeh sorry about that ... I wrote it so quickly and then shot it off.  Yes, I
did mean "can't"

I've had the same issues with running it at home. As you say, it bypasses
and that's the only way I've been able to get DNS to work.

I tried using the Ping from the WebGUI but it couldn't resolve the name.



PS. Sorry Fred, didn't mean to send it just to you originally.

Meaning an ISP DNS server IP (e.g., I presume.  Have you
tested this by using a hostname in a ping (e.g. www.mpx.com.au)?

Which of course bypasses the DNS forwarder altogether.
