Hi everyone,

I've had a strange issue I've been trying to resolve over the past few days 
where dnsmasq seems to only be allowing part of a zone transfer through, 
causing dig to hang.

I opened a Stackoverflow post to track it with most of the information I've 

With a tcpdump comparing a request with dnsmasq acting as forwarder and 
without, I can see in both cases that the upstream bind server replies with two 
packets, 2521 bytes and 189 bytes. When digging dnsmasq, the first packet is 
read out correctly and dig sits and waits for the second packet, which for some 
reason it never seems to receive.

When digging bind directly, dig receives both packets and reads out the answer 
correctly. I'm guessing I'm hitting a packet size limit causing it to split the 
response, but why does dig not receive the second packet from dnsmasq?

Kind regards,
