Are these entries a problem in my /var/log/messages


Code:
Feb  3 06:40:29 s1 named[13814]: client 88.65.99.255#18499: error sending response: host unreachable
Feb  3 06:40:32 s1 named[13814]: client 88.65.99.255#18568: error sending response: host unreachable
Feb  3 06:40:34 s1 named[13814]: client 88.65.99.255#18639: error sending response: host unreachable
Feb  3 06:40:37 s1 named[13814]: client 88.65.99.255#18723: error sending response: host unreachable
Do these lines pose a problem?

this is probably harmless. Do you have any zone transfers with another server or this is the only dns server?

I don't know what zone transfers are. So, I guess this is the only one.

If your not intentionally running a name server just type
Code:
/sbin/service named stop
chkconfig --levels 345 named off
If it's not in use there is no point in wasting resources and opening the port.

I'm running a vps that is going to be a webhosting server. Therefore, I do have it setup as a DNS server too.
