I've still had no success with getting M0n0wall to work with DNS.

From the WebGUI:-

Ping output:

ping: cannot resolve www.mpx.com.au: Host name lookup failure
ping: cannot resolve www.optus.com.au: Host name lookup failure

We are currently using NetBoz - it comes with it's own DNS Server.

Any ideas ?
