Hi all,

asking a question and waiting for Casper ...

My problem was:

I am using an ISDN router in a home LAN with ISDN dialup
and it seemed that Solaris 2.6 connect
every nameserver 4 or 5 times per hour (the nameservers outside).
This is a very expensive situation in Germany (or very nice for the
german PTT ...).

I don't know the reason for this.

Well, the answer from Casper Dik <casper@holland.Sun.COM>:

Edit /etc/nscd.conf and set keep-hot-count hosts to 0.

(it will periodically query all the cached hostnames)

Thanx to Casper for his work here.
