NETDB.nlm is loaded and it does resolve names found in
sys:etc\resolv.cfg
but other domain names are not resolved.

The DNS servers listed in the resolv.cfg ARE valid and there are 2
listed
there.

Example: I try to 'ping abc.com'. The ping screen comes up, it waits
a
second and then says 'could not resolve name ''abc.com''

Any idea what simple thing I am missing here?

Thanks
