Re: ping question



Thank you

1/ host command can return right ip address

2/ why /etc/host in the hosts relates to the outside
equiry?

I am using outside server to check this domain

The mydomain can return right ip address 
But I am curious why the 2nd line is 

171203020173.upstream.com instead of mydomain.com ?

It should be. right?

64 bytes from www.mydomain.com (171.203.20.173):
icmp_seq=1 ttl=43 time=291 ms

Thank you
