This means that the DNS server is not configured to allow
recursive lookups.  So, it is probably only going to answer queries for
domains that are local to that DNS server.  Either that, or it isn't
allowing recursive lookups from your IP address range.

Subject: Re: [m0n0wall] DNS forwarder problem

Hi all,

I have been trying to investigate my DNS forwarding problem.
In the logs I am seeing this:
dnsmasq[1150]: nameserver refused to do a recursive query

So it looks like I have to search the problem in the dnsmasq, but
are options to alter here something.

I already changed machines and NIC's and with both v1.2 as v1.3b2 I have

this prob.
I did notice that only 1 of the 3 DNS servers gives this response, all
servers I get via DHCP on the WAN side.
Is there maybe a solution to eliminate the faulty DNS server?
Plz shine a light over this weird problem.....
