Squish's DNSCheck suggests nothing at our end is at fault. (It can
resolve the CNAME and the A record it points to using all available
paths through root servers and name servers at Pepperfish.) This
suggests a local configuration or connectivity ISP issue at your end.
Nothing would surprise me, but something bizarre seems to be happening
here! On a Windows machine, Firefox 4 immediately connects to
downloads the file, without problem. To me, this suggests that there is
no issue with the connection, or DNS.
However, using RPCemu, RO 4.39, running on the same Windows machine,
launching the download link, in NetSurf, leads to
Could not resolve host: www.netsurf-browser.org
contacting DNS servers)
ping: unknown host www.netsurf-browser.org
Using the RiscPC, RO 6.20, produces exactly the same results as RPCemu.
Running on either RPCemu, or the RiscPC, NetSurf connects to other
websites, eg BBC, The Register, The Guardian, etc, without problem.
Moreover, all three machines are connected to the same LinkSys router,
so that their settings are the same.
How can www.netsurf-browser.org
be hiding from RISC OS machines?
