    unbound "sendto failed: No buffer space available"

And in /var/log/messages I such messages: Jan 30 11:29:10 MAIN-GATE unbound: [59552:2] notice: sendto failed: No buffer space available Jan 30...

    Setting up DNS alias records

    Apologies if this should be in the ports (I'm using nsd) or networking sections; please feel free to move it, if so. I want both "momcat" and "www" to resolve to the same IP ( at present). If I'm right (please correct me if I'm not!), this should resolve correctly in the forward...

    Solved Spotty DNS Performance

    I have been having irregular DNS performance issues and have been unable to diagnose or correct them. It appears my (new-ish) router has its own DNS server settings with the primary pointed to an address in Dubai, UAE, and the secondary at Google's primary DNS. I'm in Colorado, USA. I can change...

    Restarting Services

    OK, I know this is very simple, or at least it should be, so apologies. I am running bind DNS. I made a change to the config file and now want to restart/reload the service. There is a script called 'named' in /usr/local/etc/rc.d. I tried service named restart and service named stop and...

    Postfix - does not resolve a new revDNS entry

    Hello! I have a strange problem. My postfix does not resolve one of the IP address to domain name. So, in such case mail is dropped. Restarting the postfix does not help. host command from this OS resolves this IP correctly. I don't use any DNS server on this machine. Where can be a problem...

    Solved block youtube unbound

    Searching this forum I've seen a number of ways to block youtube using ubound DNS. Problem is, it seems the methods are outdated. When I try the "local-zone "something" static" thing, I receive a syntax error upon trying restart the service. I'm on FreeBSD 11 and using dns/unbound. Can someone...

    Unbound intermittently slow with @localhost

    I'm just setting up an unbound server as a local resolver for our network. I'm not really seeing any actual issues but when running lookups from localhost, it's a bit disconcerting that the lookup sometimes hangs for over 10 seconds before finally returning a response. Even with the delay, the...

    In certain ISP crappy routers, the locally provided DNS resolver cannot handle DNSSEC and _srv queries, which breaks pkg at bootstrap, along with many other things. As these resolvers are handed out via DHCP from the router, I need to hard-code a specific forwarder and not have DHCP overwrite...
