I just typed:

ping -c 4 boinc.berkeley.edu

and it said:


PING boinc.ssl.berkeley.edu ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=51 time=170.093 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=51 time=74.593 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=51 time=81.361 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=51 time=71.274 ms

--- boinc.ssl.berkeley.edu ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 4 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 71.274/99.330/170.093/41.016 ms


So it shows that it resolved the hostname "boinc.berkeley.edu" to the
hostname "boinc.ssl.berkeley.edu" and then further to the IP address
"", sent 4 pings to that machine, and got 4 responses.

If your machine does not do the same, then something is the matter
with your network at the DNS layer. You may wish to talk to your ISP
or network administrator.
