[jitsi-users] How to force an alternate DNS resolver? Jitsi fails resolving


#1

The file: /etc/resolv.conf links to: /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf

The directory: /etc/resolvconf/run/ links to the directory: /run/resolvconf

Therefore the file: /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf, which I have modified (as mentioned in the OP), is the end entity, pointed to by /etc/resolv.conf

So the question remains; why does Jitsi fail in dns srv resolution, while the dig command succeeds under the same conditions. And most importantly: how to fix this? (since it prevents Jitsi from running)?

Thank you, Marious. But sorry I wasn't clear enough: I have erased the
previous name server address, and left only

the new one. Here is the entire /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf file:

and still, dig works fine (uses the 127.0.0.2 name server address, and
succeeds in resolving), but Jitsi fails.

Do you also have a file /etc/resolv.conf ?

If yes, do the contents differ from the above "nameserver 127.0.0.2"?
