resolving site names

Just corrected all tests via the script. I can ping 8.8.8.8 from the machine but it will not resolve irlp.net. I do have my isp's name server in the resolv.conf file
nameserver 24.148.96.18
nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220

Any help will be appreciated.

Well something is not right with those servers. I would make the file the following:

nameserver 1.1.1.1
nameserver 1.0.0.1

Remove all other entries.

Those are OpenDNS servers.

I prefer them to Google DNS because of tracking reasons, and I also can always recall both the primary and secondary of the OpenDNS servers.

I used to use the ones at the local university, but I was asked to stop sending premade systems out around the world that used them for host resolution :)

Actually 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 are Cloudflare, Inc servers. catchy URL https://1.1.1.1/ They are meant to be super fast from anywhere on the Internet. Cloudflare is an independent company in to Content Delivery, DDos Mitigation services and other things you want to go really fast through the night.

OpenDNS are the 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220. A service of Cisco Systems, that really wants you to subscribe to and set up fancy filtering. Presumably free, but I worry about free stuff you have to register for...

If you continue to have trouble, drop a note to installs@ irlp.net with your login information and someone can take a look at it for you.
