Hi all.

Im pleased to say, this is a valuable list!
The problem which seemed to be identified was the
nameserver cache daemon. It has to be set to YES.
I had turned it off because I was originally intending
to install a squid server on the machine (there was
mention of NSCD probs with squid).

Im kinda annoyed that I didnt bother checking the
release notes! RTFM ... mumble mumble

Thanks goes to:
Neil Dyce -
Douglas Palmer -
Ramji Venkateswaran -
Frank Smith -

also to John Malick - for suggesting
proxying problems.

All the best,
