Possible Security Concern?


Hi! These DNS messages are showing up in my /var/log/messages log what could this mean? Does this mean that other parities are using me as their DNS server? If so how do we stop this?

A lame server in DNS means that the server responding is not authoritative for a domain which has been delegated to it. In general you can ignore those messages. If you'd like to disable them add:

Code:
logging {
        category        lame-servers    {null; };
};
To your named.conf file.

Thanks, I thought this meant that people were using this server as a DNS resolver. I'll add the comments to the config.
