Hmmm... what OS are you using ? Using nslookup
(the one included with Cygwin) on Windows 2000 Pro
looking up sbcglobal.net I get:
"can't find sbcglobal.net: Server failed"
so it's not necessarily a Squeak issue. And OSProcess
probably wouldn't help.
If, in nslookup I do a:
first then it tells me all about those MX records.
But looking at NetNameResolver I don't see a way of telling
it what type of DNS record to retrieve, just the address and
a timeout value.
Of course, I could be wrong... but maybe someone needs to
change NetNameResolver to handle more than one type of
DNS record ? Or maybe this is just a Windows "feature"
and it works fine elsewhere... ?
