I have a DNS server configured on my vMX, however, I get 'no route to host' when I try to ping a host name, even though I can successfully ping the host's IP address. Why is my ping to host name failing?
lab@vmx-1# show system name-server
DNS IS ABLE TO RESOLVE HOST NAME GOOGLE.COM:
lab@vmx-1# run show host google.com
google.com has address 126.96.36.199
google.com has IPv6 address 2607:f8b0:400a:80b::200e
google.com mail is handled by 10 smtp.google.com.
I AM ABLE TO PING GOOGLE.COM IP ADDRESS
lab@vmx-1# run ping 188.8.131.52 count 1
