That's the one that I used on the 2 machines that were updated to OpenSSH.
those are the only 2 that are exhibiting the failing dns lookups. These
machines have performed flawlessly since July - just before I went on
holidays, I removed ssh, updated glibc and installed OpenSSH. Then dns
failures galore....I've gotten 2 since my last email to you.

Is there a way to go back? If I can go back, then I can roll my own
OpenSSH and that should fix the problem..

I just don't want to decimate my system by forcing a glibc downgrade.

Thanks for your responses.
