Hello to all, Over 1/2 of the lines in my messages log (/var/log/messages) are as follows: Code: Oct 17 19:09:50 host named: error (unexpected RCODE REFUSED) resolving 'cha131.profexpert.pw/A/IN': 188.8.131.52#53 i understand that these errors come, in part, from non-existent or malformed PTR records when a reverse-lookup happens.. However, it seems like named just keeps trying the same IP addresses hundreds of times before giving up... My question is this: Is there any way to tell named to give up quicker, or stop trying so hard? Thank You! EDIT: i forgot to mention that, a lot of the times, the IP addresses and/or domains in question are already on RBLs used by my server!!
