My desktop was sending out a request that didn't get a valid response, so it then sent a second request with out internal domain appended to the original request and *that* is what generated an actual error. So, we're not getting a specific error response, it's just that the responses are being truncated to 128 bytes even though the IP header says that they all should be longer. I think this is occurring because I'm being a dork and trying to do an nslookup on a root server and they're not designed for that. An nslookup directed at another ISP's name server seems to work just fine so the problem must lie in our own DNS server. Nothing was changed recently and that is the perplexing issues. It just appeared that it couldn't reach any of the root servers, so we--being unwashed and unschooled--went barking up the wrong tree. My apologies, and I'll get back to hounding our DNS admin. :-0 Thanks, John
