That's what most Unix/Linux/*BSD boxes do unless they are running a local caching name service of some time (BIND, nscd, etc.). I wasn't actually aware that Windows had a DNS cache service. -- Chris Adams <firstname.lastname@example.org> Systems and Network Administrator - HiWAAY Internet Services I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
