    Go on, have a guess
    The most important thing is probably to disable recursive lookups:

    Also, make sure that you do not use 127.0.0.1 as a resolver in /etc/resolv.conf.

    And of course make sure that you are running the latest distribution for your OS, or upgrade it if your OS is EOL.
