I've looked through a bunch of similar posts but none solve my problem nor match my conditions.
I have connected my pi to my local network. I can reach the internet (google) but for some reason I cannot reach web pages hosted by my local machines on the same network.
It has something to do with resolving the host name with the local DNS server. when using 'nslookup' on a select host name it resolves the address and gives me the IP of the DNS server and the target server.
But if I try to ping the target host name I get "Unknown host..." Also if i try to ping the DNS server i get "icmp open socket: Operation not permitted"
So I am perplexed how can nslookup resolve completely but ping fail completely?
Also other machines on the network have no problem accessing eachother. And if i use the IP in the web address instead of the hostname the page displays just fine (just not when resolving pages from other machines). There is no whitelisting going on on our DNS server with exception to MAC address reservation which ive done.
