Question about changing to new ISP - SCO

    Default Question about changing to new ISP

    I am running a SCO 5.0.4 server that is my Web server and E-mail
    server. I have switched to a new ISP and have updated the DNS. When I
    do a whois it shows the record has been updated. The update took place
    on Saturday.

    Now...I have changed my resolv.conf file to reflect the new DNS and I
    can ping to the outside world and get resolution. I can get to the web
    site by using the I.P. address but not by name. I can send mail and
    receive mail by using the I.P. address as well but not by name. I am
    not running named and never did with my old provider either.

    Are there any other changes I need to make or is this a problem with
    my new provider? The information listed by dig is not the new DNS
    that was updated on Saturday. Here are the results of dig on my
    server:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...THANKS

    Obviously the problem was caused by your DNS move not happening, I suggest
    you discuss this with your ISP as it is NOT an OS issue.

    Why ask us? Change your resolv.conf to point at a different DNS
    server. If you then work, obviously it's your new server. If not,
    you have something else munged.

    Or are you saying that in general name resolution works but not
    for this particular site? If that's the issue, it's your
    Apache/sendmail or whatever you are using configuration that doesn't
    recognize the name. Or the DNS isn't pointing right.

    If I telnet selectgroupusa.com 25 or telnet selectgroupusa.com 80, nothing
    talks to me.. which could be a firewall issue, but if I traceroute
    it takes more patience than I have to find out..

    I can do a whois and it returns the following:

    Domain Name: SELECTGROUPUSA.COM
    Registrar: NETWORK SOLUTIONS, INC.
    Whois Server: whois.networksolutions.com
    Referral URL: [url]http://www.networksolutions.com[/url]
    Name Server: NS1.LSN.NET
    Name Server: NS2.LSN.NET
    Status: ACTIVE
    Updated Date: 09-aug-2003
    Creation Date: 29-may-1998
    Expiration Date: 28-may-2010

    >>> Last update of whois database: Mon, 11 Aug 2003 18:28:01 EDT <<<
    If I do a dig I get the same results as if nothing ever happened. It
    returns my old information instead of the new information.

    Could it be because my new ISP needs to host my DNS?

    Thanks for your help
