PowerDNS recursion


There's a section in pdns.conf that looks like this

Quote:
#################################
# allow-recursion List of netmasks that are allowed to recurse
#
allow-recursion=
Our public IPs have changed. In that line allow-recursion the old file lists the internal IP block, the public IP block and the loopback.

Our new IPs are 77.73.186.34/27 and 77.73.186.36/27.

Can someone tell me which one goes into the pdns.conf file??

That should list the IPs that are allowed to make recursive queries. If your server is on the internal network, it should only allow loopback and internal IPs. You shouldn't have a situation where your external IPs are showing as the source for queries to your internal DNS server.
