Do your own DNS. Your ISP chokes in AAAA ('IPv6') look ups. If you're not allowed to, still run a local resolver with aggressive neg ttl caching. See the numerous tutorials on the web on how to run your own resolver. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
