    SSH, DNS and routers

    i've been searching for 2 days, and not really knowing what to search for, I have been unable to comeup with the answer.

    I have a redhat box with SSH installed. The box is behind a linksys router.

    When I try to use NSlookup, I get the following error:

    *** Can't find server name for address 192.168.1.1: Non-existent host/domain
    *** Default servers are not available

    Is there a way to configure SSH to use a different set of Nameservers?

    Ie: ns1.myISP.com & ns2.myISP.com

    Any help would be appreciated...

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.

    That is a function of Linux. not SSH. You want to change the address in your resolv.conf file:
