 Subject:  DNS forwarder problem (still)
 Date:  Fri, 11 Jul 2008 07:37:21 -0300
Hi all,

I use here m0n0wall with on the WAN site a cable connection, using DHCP.
Since the 1st time I installed m0n0wall I have the problem that after a 5-10 
mins the connection stops.
The problem lays in the DNS forwarder, if I configure the DNS servers, who I 
get via DHCP manually, then I do not have any problem.
Since dnsmaq was updated I thought to give it a try again, but unfortunatly 
without result.
I am getting 3 DNS servers via DHCP, one is giving the faults causing my 
problem:

Jul 10 17:12:55 last message repeated 2 times 
Jul 10 17:12:20 dnsmasq[338]: reading /var/db/dhcpd.leases 
Jul 10 17:09:54 dnsmasq[338]: nameserver 200.19.74.21 refused to do a 
recursive query 
Jul 10 17:09:54 dnsmasq[338]: nameserver 200.19.74.21 refused to do a 
recursive query 
Jul 10 17:05:20 dnsmasq[338]: reading /var/db/dhcpd.leases

After the last msj (17:12:55) DNS forwarding stops and nothing can be 
resolved anymore.
The server mentioned is the 3rd from the provider, others AND a manually 
assigned DNS servers are not giving any trouble. Is there a way to go around 
this and still use DNS forwarding but let the faulty server out?

Advise highly appreciated!! :o)
