Re: domain name

If you have a name-server configured using 'ip name-server' then the configured DNS server will return the IP address of www.i4u.com...

Hope that helps ... pls rate all posts.

Re: domain name

The router is trying to resolve the IP of i4u.com via the DNS 10.80.0.50. But it cannot find corresponding IP for this domain name. Is your DNS server include this entry ? If not, it is normal.

Re: domain name

Just to add to Jack's post: if you want to stop this from happening, configure 'no ip domain-lookup'.
