Recursive Queries is reporting as
I could use the nameservers listed below to performe recursive queries. It may be that I am wrong but the chances of that are low. You should not have nameservers that allow recursive queries as this will allow almost anyone to use your nameservers and can cause problems. Problem record(s) are:
212.xxx.x.xx
212.xxx.x.xx
How do I solve this

Hello :)

In your /etc/named.conf file, look for:

Code:
view    "external" {
What is the recursion value under this view?

Thank you.

Hello,

I have the same problem with Recursive Queries, i see that there is no reaction from the member Markjcc, on the answer from cPanel Micheal, i got this on my /etc/named.conf file;

view "external" {
/* This view will contain zones you want to serve only to "external" clients
* that have addresses that are not on your directly attached LAN interface subnets:
*/
recursion no;
additional-from-cache no;
// you'd probably want to deny recursion to external clients, so you don't
// end up providing free DNS service to all takers

// all views must contain the root hints zone:
zone "." IN {
type hint;

Hello :)

That shows recursion is actually disabled already. You can generate a new instance of /etc/named.conf with the following commands:

Code:
mv /etc/named.conf /etc/named.conf.backup1
/scripts/rebuilddnsconfig
Does this make a different in the IntoDNS output?

Thank you.
