what is "tyler:named {23}"? is it part of your resolv.conf? if so, is it
a replacement for "nameserver <ns_ip>"?  as  far  as  I  can  tell,  man
resolv.conf(5) doesn't list it as a valid statement. and it looks a lot
like a command prompt to me.

what are the contents of /etc/resolv.conf on the machine?  are
you trying to access a bryckwyndows machine from the web browser  or  an
external one?
