I hope to make it. I'll have to borrow Diane's laptop.
My Linux laptop makes a fine computer, but a bad television
It says "Topic: Good question!"
So here's my good question:
I run a name server (DNS). A few days ago it started getting
abut 100 requests/min from many different IP addresses
all for isc.org
. Why are they asking me?
I believe I have it set up so that queries from
inside the house are so-called "recurive"---
it searches the internet for an answer, but
queries from outside are anwered only with info
it already has. I am not sure if that means it only
answer queries for which it authoritative, or if
it also anwers if it has the data cached.
I would like it to just blow off any queries
for which it is not authoritative. Tell where
to send mail for @keithdiane.us and not even answer
otherwise. It is remarkably difficult to get it to
put replies into the log file, even if it is logging
Could somebody run the following and tell me the
dig @22.214.171.124 isc.org
(that's my IP address)
