IssueThe most common issue with Open Transport TCP/IP configuration is, the bootp server has not been configured to return a domain name, and no domain name was specified in the Open Transport TCP/IP control panel. This causes the Domain Name Server, router, and domain name to not be returned properly.
In order to permit the resolution of partially qualified domain names, Open Transport TCP/IP requires a domain name to be configured, either in the control panel, or from your BOOTP/DHCP server. This corresponds to the default domain in MacTCP.
In order to use the DNR at all, Open Transport TCP/IP also needs the address of at least one domain name server, but it can also be configured or returned from a server. This information was included in the Open Transport documentation, but did not get included in balloon help.
SolutionInstalling Open Transport 1.0.8 will correct this situation.
WorkaroundIf you do not have access to Open Transport 1.0.8 immediately, but need to correct this problem temporarily, you can use this workaround in the until you can download it. Either configure the bootp server to return a domain name, or enter a domain name in the TCP/IP control panel. You must be in Advanced user mode in the Open Transport TCP/IP control panel to do this.
