Turned out the problem was with a poorly configured URL filter rule on a Huawei 4G LTE router. No longer seeing the warnings.

Actually, IRLP does not depend on Internet DNS to make and receive calls, IRLP uses it own unique routine to do that. But DNS IS used for auxiliary functions such as updating the status page, gathering updates and so forth. It SHOULD work.

I am getting extraneous warnings about DNS not being setup correctly in my /home/irlp/log/messages.

DNS is setup correctly as incoming and outgoing connections are happening correctly.

More of a nuisance than a problem. Any ideas?
