Host command query
I have just joined and am new when it comes to BackTrack and pentesting. I have booted BT without any problems on a couple of computers and have been experimenting with the basic bash / linux commands but have noticed a slight problem.
Specifically, when I attempt to use the host command in order to attempt a DNS zone transfer '.Belkin' is appended to the end of the domain name. I currently use a Belkin router (model F5D7230-4) and have been able to obtain the correct output using Fierce but have no luck using the host command. For example:
bt ~ # host -l -v xxx.com ns2.xxx.com
; Transfer failed.
Using domain server:
Host xxx.com.Belkin not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
Would anyone be able to help me remove the .Belkin at the end of the domain name? I have tried searching but to no avail
I used the command shown below to change my DNS to OpenDNS, which appears to have fixed the problem!
echo nameserver 126.96.36.199 > /etc/resolv.conf
Feel slightly silly for posting then replying but hope it is of use to someone!
