Name serving

What is doing nameserving ? there is no named. How do I stop nameserving ? I have removed system>name-servers and services>dns and I guess dhclient is still getting my Cable Co default DNS servers and somehow using those as I see those in resolv.conf -- but what is using resolv.conf to nameserve ?


I want to stop whatever is doing name serving as I want to run pdns_recursor and its failing. I think maybe it cant bind the socket as its already in use, even tho I cant seem to find it even using netstat.

Re: Name serving

try "sudo netstat -lpnut".

That should confirm that dnsmasq being the process you are looking for.
