Thanks David (and Tessa who suggested the same by email) I tried
reversing the octects of the IP for the DNS but to no effect. Does
anyone know if that particular bug affects palmOS 5.4?

addresses like 184.108.40.206 (google) but I cannot get any domain
names resolved. Ping google.com results in a timeout, Blazer times
out, Versamail can't find the servers, etc.
I've seen a similar problem before several years ago, and it
ended up being a bug in PalmOS itself, where you had to enter the IP
addresses backwards. The link below might help:

I guess that this could be a wider problem with my DNS settings but I'm
really not sure? I was using 10.0.0.2 as the DNS server but today I
noticed I was getting slow domain name lookups when surfing the web on
the PC. So I have now configured Linux to use my ISP's DNS instead and
domain name lookups are now instant from the PC.
Having solved that I was excited that the PC to Treo internet connection
might be working! I setup the ppp connection to use the new DNS and
connected again from my Treo. But no, I get exactly the same results:
can ping local IP's and external IP's but can't resolve domain names,
it's driving me crazy!
I have also tried removing the "ms-dns" line from the ppp config file
and instead entering the DNS manually into the Advanced network settings
page on the Treo. Again no joy - exactly the same symptoms. Anyone any
Thanks for your help
