domain server 255.255.255.255

hi

often when u type an unknown command in a cisco router you get the message

Translating "cisco"....domain server 255.255.255.255

the error message appears 4 times before you are taken back to the console.

this is irritating,and i was wondering if there is a way to stop the router from displaying the error message

Hi Friend,

Just issue this command "no ip domain-lookup" on global config mode and this will take care of this messages.

so what really causes the router to show the message,what is it trying to do.

Hi

the router is trying to do a DNS lookup on what you have typed in because it doesn't recognise what you have typed in as a command.

if you have "fat" fingers like me it really helps to use "no ip domain-lookup" :-)

Dont forget to issue " wr mem " after issuing " no ip-domain look up command. If router reboots this command will be gone without " wr mem ".
