DNS Method

Hey,

ive started getting similar to the following for License server checks and also the name server lookups when adding new servers…

Failed to contact licence server : Failed to lookup IP address for software.virtualmin.com

what method does the web interface use for dns lookups?

im able to ping hostnames, dig host names, nslookup etc

all of which work without issue, and yet the web page still gives these errors

[root@pikachu ~]# dig software.virtualmin.com

; <<>> DiG 9.9.4-RedHat-9.9.4-61.el7 <<>> software.virtualmin.com
