Hi, I was trying to test dnsmasq (2.80) and I either miss a point or I cannot find how to enable the caching while being in TCP mode.
I was trying to use it in a --keep-in-forground mode with a setup like dnsmasq -k --port=1053 --log-facility=/dev/stdout --log-queries --no-hosts --cache-size=1000 --neg-ttl=30 This works in general but trying to do a simple `dig +tcp google.de -p 1053 @localhost` this will _always_ forward it to the upstream DNS server (in my case it is 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11). I checked it in the log as well as with `tcpdump` and it definitely is always asking the upstream server. I also tried to install it within Debian unstable instead of compiling it myself. Same version, standard install, only change in the config was to comment in the `cache-size=150` .. still same thing is happening. Fun part: if I use `-d` instead of `-k` the cache suddenly starts to work. The first request goes to the upstream, every other until the TTL hits in is answered from the cache. The main difference for me (while I tried to debug it within the code): `-d` is never forking, `-k` is still forking for a retrieved TCP connection. UDP btw is always working fine (the cache is being used, in Daemon mode, `-k` and also `-d`).
