DNS server won't listen

DNS server won't listen

Post by Senor Rodgma » Wed, 27 Sep 2000 14:29:40



I'm trying to set up a home LAN with a Linux DNS server. However, for
reasons unknown, the DNS server refuses to function. Despite the output
below from /var/log/messages, it won't respond to requests, and nslookup
fails with the following error:

*** Can't find server name for address 127.0.0.1: No response from server

I think this might be because inet.conf doesn't have any lines telling it
what to do with requests on the domain port (53?), but I'm not sure what
these lines should be

help greatly appreciated

Ignore this: I've got it fixed now. Turned out nothing was happening on the
loopback device, because my iptables setup was overly harsh on outgoing
packets (dropping by default). Doh.

1. Listen and 're-listen' ?

Hi all,

In C:

If  I stated somewhere in the beginning of my program:

  rc = listen (sockfd,5);

Is it possible to review this number later in the program, for instance
with a second call to listen ?

 rc = listen (sockfd,10);

If so, is this straightforward, or is something to worry about ?

Kind Regards
