LFS211 Lab 7.3

edited August 2 in LFS211 Class Forum

Hi, please help. Im trying to do the exercise in lab 7.3 of LFS211. When doing:

lynx -dump http://ipvhost.example.com/index.html

the terminal stdout is:

Looking up ipvhost.example.com
Unable to locate remote host ipvhost.example.com.
Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

lynx: Can't access startfile http://ipvhost.example.com/index.html

Im pretty sure I did everything as was pointed out in the guide. Im running fedora OS, version 36

I will post the things I consider to be relevant here. I case you can help me out. What am I missing?

    It almost looks like a name resolution issue. If you ping ipvhost.example.com what does the name resolve to?
