FWIW, it seems that here with 1.2b9, m0n0wall's DNS forwarding
responds "sometimes" for TCP queries using nslookup as mentioned in the
previous MS technote ("set vc"). If it does, it seems to take a long
time, like 1-2 minutes...which means probably the ones that don't work
are simply timing out since they take longer. When using "set novc" the
query responds virtually instantly. And yes I'm using new hostnames so
they aren't cached.
And during this time, Chris, the firewall is dropping all the
retry packets, as designed. :)
