    Hi,

    I'm trying to get RBLDNSD running so I do some custom mail filtering using Exim's DNSLIST function.

    I've found a guide to installing it

    http://tqmcube.com/rbldnsd.php

    but am unable to get the BIND zone forwarding to work properly so the "dig" test doesn't work :(

    Any clues/tips from the gurus?

    Thanks,

    Mark.

    OK. After a good nights sleep and a mug of decaf coffee, I figured out what the problem was...

    dig, nslookup and friends use /etc/resolv.conf to figure out which nameserver to speak to when performing a lookup.

    I added the IP of the server (rather than 127.0.0.1) as the first entry and voilĂ ! it works :D

    WHM :: Main >> Networking Setup >> Resolver Configuration

    * The ConfigServer Firewall security-check advises AGAINST using 127.0.0.1 in resolv.conf

    Mark.
