Receiving error “ping: unknown host “


I was trying to ping google.com on my linux test box and was receiving the

ping: unknown host http://www.google.com

I was able to ping the ip address, so I started troubleshooting looking for hostname, ip address, resolv.conf. I found that DNS was wrong and changed the nameserver ip address in /etc/resolv.conf to fix the issue.
