Howto flush the DNS cache in Ubuntu 12.04?

November 18, 2012

I guess most of you know how to flush the DNS cache on Windows

ipconfig /flushdns

but how to you do it with Ubuntu? Just open with CTR-ALT-T the terminal and type following

sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean

  1. IIRC ‘ip route flush cache’ does the trick too. As a bonus it’s not vendor specific.
