    If you're getting this error when using the named server on FreeBSD:

    failed connecting to rnd load failed: connection refused

    Then likely your named.conf file is missing reference to rndc key. To fix this problem, do two things:

    1) ln -s /etc/namedb/named.conf /etc/named.conf (Because FBSD looks for /etc/named.conf)

    2) Edit your named.conf and add the following line to the top:

    3) Restart your bind server, note use /scripts/restartsrv_bind , do NOT use restartsrv_named as it breaks bind on FBSD.

    Hope this helps someone..
