I have had a problem about name resolution on my mac(running on 10.6.8) from yesterday.


After a reboot yesterday, suddenly I coudn't use safari so I investigated some.
nslookup worked correctly, but ping didn't. seemed mDNSResponder had the problem.
I found mDNSResponder process on my process list by using ps command then I tried restarting  the service with following commands.


$ sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist
$ sudo launchctl load -F /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist

Yes, this solved the problem at the moment BUT I need to restart the service after every boot up. I don't know why first invoked process doesn't work correctly.


Any Idea?
