    When he says Public DNS servers, he's referring to internet wide DNS servers. Specifically it generally means Google's DNS servers, or OpenDNS's DNS servers (Wow say that 5 times fast).

    Spamhaus has blacklisted lookups from those public services. They have done so because they break Spamhaus's billing model. The service is only free up until a certain number of lookups. Those free services generate hundreds of millions of lookups against their database.

    So if you use the public DNS servers, know that you're killing the Spam module in the process. Fortunately it's trivial to have Untangle's DHCP service hand out different DNS servers to your clients. So you can have Untangle using the ISP, while passing OpenDNS to the clients for use. So you can have your cake and eat it too. It's even easier if you have an SBS server or other system on the network that can be a dedicated caching DNS service for your LAN.

    Anyway, there is no reason why the use of public DNS services would have interrupted your ability to install Untangle or its modules. Unless your ISP is controlling outbound DNS traffic. I would say you have another issue aside from the DNS configuration that is really causing the connection difficulties.

    agreed SK actually ANY AD server not just sbs can work in the scenario you jsut offered.. HOwever our limited information about his hardware is going to limit the help we can give.

    It is an HP DL380 (3rd or 4th generation) with 4 gig of ram and three 72 GIG drives using the HP Raid Controller in RAID 5, motherboard nic for the public side and PCI-X NIC for the private side... this is the exact system that up until a few days ago, ran Untangle v8.1 like a dream.

    it sounds like you have a hardware incompatibility w/v9.x. Do you have another machine you can try?

    I think you are right... it just doesn't want to load any applications. It did finish updating to v9.01. I am trying a totally different box now to see if that works better. Thanks for all the suggestions. I need to get out of town, but want to get this fixed before I go. Happy 4th!

    the only thing i can think of trying is when i have had issues with newer software and older gear bios/firmware updates have been good fixes..if they are available.

    Using a different machine was the ticket... I guess even though v8.1.1 ran like a top, v9.01 does not like the HP DL380 server. It is an older server so no problem. Got a "newer" Dell 2600 which I will try next.
