    I have a whitelist which includes apple.com, however I am unable to get to the mac store or itunes store unless i flush the dns cache first. Once I am in I can't purchase unless I flush the dns cache again. Before every operation I need to flush the dns cache to make it work. Any idea?

    What are the exact symptoms with being unable to access the Apple pages?
    What is the (bad) content of your DNS cache at these times?
    You could disable your local DNS cache in general.

    How do I find this out?

    How do I disable? What are the effects?

    This is a function of the same command used to flush the cache. Use the command's help function to find out (which is most always -h). I believe for dscacheutil it is -cachedump

    How to disable: Turn off the resolver daemon, I believe. I don't know how.
    Effects: Lookups is no longer cached locally, so you don't need to empty the cache repeatedly while this problem is occurring.

    why doesn't it work with the apple.com domain? The symptom is a message "unable to connect to itunes store"

    Why do you need to repeatedly flush your cache? Who knows? This sounds like a problem with your OS.

    Why doesn't it just work with apple.com? Because apple has their stuff hosted at multiple domains, and uses CDNs. You wouldn't have, say, akamai.net blocked?

    Also, is this message from the itunes app or a browser? Either way, the message only states the obvious.

    What are the domains that need to be whitelisted for mac app store and itunes to work?

    Look at your Stats for blocked domains and find out.
