Thanks to all who replied (too many to mention but special thanks to
Johnny Chang).... successful resolution of the problem involved :

(i) Modification of the file /etc/nsswitch.conf to include the line

hosts:      dns files

(ii) Addition of the IP addresses and names of servers in the
/etc/resolv.conf file to the /etc/hosts file

(iii) Rebooting the machine to pick up the IP address in the
/etc/defaultrouter file which had been added since the previous reboot.
