DNS? What DNS?
This has never happened before and in light light of this morning's news
about the DDOS I was wondering if it is just my machine or if something
else is going on.
A firewall on one of my machines blocked IE from getting to the net. I
wanted to trace where it was planning to go to (22.214.171.124)to figure
out if this was just XP again or something else.
I tried Neo Trace and PC Helps "Net Tracer" but neither can track it.
All I get is "undetermined" or "timed out"

I really do not know if this is right or wrong but...
If I take the default list of servers when it complete the verification
there are 4 dead ones.
If I turn on DNSSEC and the verification is re-run then when that
completes there are 19 (the largest number I have seen) dead
nameservers. The number does appear to vary from 8 to 19 and sometimes
it changes anything up to a minute or so after the verification says its
complete. But I do not have any accurate timings on that.
I was under the impression that this was just a test to see if they

We are running 2 BM (3.8) Proxies and until today they have been
operating reasonably well.
Today we have started getting a lot of 504 errors on workstations using
either both servers, looking at the proxy DNS page (on both servers) the
DNS links are continually going up and down (like our internet)
We have 3 DNS servers entered 2 external and 1 internal. I have tested
from outside the BM Servers $and know the 2 external DNS servers are
working fine (also no one else who use our provider have an issue). The
internal DNS also seems fime.

Too many times over the last few weeks, you heard that the real answer to
all the DNS problems is DNSSEC. I decided to give it a try, and signed the
dshield.org zone. DNSSEC is not exactly used very widely, and it is very
possible that we will be running into some problems. If you experience any
issues, please let us know (via isc.sans.org ;-) ). For most users, this
will not change anything. It only matters if your resolver or your web
browser actually verifies DNSSEC signature. Expect a few changes to our
dshield.org zone while I experiment.

Actually, this newsgroup is for discussing Steve's DNS project. Your
question is more appropriate in grc.techtalk, or grc.security.software,
where everyone else asks this question.

No DS records found for dns-ok.us in the us zone
I am a fictional character, and I don't mean anything I say.

Broken? yes, of course. The FBI released such addresses.

UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things,
because that would also stop you from doing clever things.

...NetWare DNS & EDNS/DNSSEC support?
Just checking, but is there anything that needs to be configured on
NetWare DNS to enable pass-through of EDNS/DNSSEC queries? I'm running
NW65SP8 with the latest DNS patches, and running a test suggests that
the server doesn't forward EDNS queries. With the roleout of DNSSEC to
the roots in a week, I wanted to make sure this wouldn't be an issue.
I've already tweaked my firewall and a secondary Win2k3 DNS server to

We had a problem the other day when we lost power on our external DNS
server. Users out on the internet were not able to hit our website and
do any resolutions to our Secure VPN gateway. When we used the URL
address for the website it would not resolve. When we used the VPN
Client it would not resolve the name to an address to access the VPN. If
we used the IP address it would work.
I was under the impression if my dns server went down anyone trying to
resolve address to my domain would get the resolution from their DNS
server since this information was cached in their DNS Server....Novell DNS with W2K DNS
I have to setup and AD in our NetWare 5.1 environment. DNS service
are hosted by Netware server. AD needs a DNS server. Can I use the
Netware DNS or I need to configure a new W2K DNS? Since AD need to
register specific records in DNS.
If you have any good documents or links about that I will appreciate.
Thanks in advance
Some of my clients are in the same boat. The configuration that seems
to work best for them is to have the MS DNS running to handle the AD
stuff. Also run the Novell DNS pointing to the MS DNS as the
authoritative source. Have the ...DNS Forwarders to Microsoft DNS
