Re: Help! - BIND floods with UDP packets
Yeah, I know what is the normal behavior. But it really floods. I already have one working DNS server which has forwarders option set to ISP DNS server, it works perfectly more than 1 year. This buggy DNS is the second and I set it up yesterday. This is not my first BIND installed, I know how to set it up correctly.
The bug is that second BIND (when being run by ndc start) floods local LAN between its host and main DNS with UDP traffic, and then floods outer link. This is not normal work, when 256kbit/s link is 80% filled with UDP, you should realize this :)
I think problem can be in incorrectly set up timings for several zones. For example 0 seconds of TTL or such... Answer to myself :)
