dns failures on local addresses
Authored by: fmr on May 17, '01 07:56:23PM

I followed the instructions, and then heavily modified my config for my local setup.
It all works beatifully, although my rules need a little more tuning, apart from the following.

When adding the rules for RFC1918 addresses, and probably the draft-manning ones as well, ipfw appears to be asking NetInfo for ip to hostname lookups. Of course these fail. Normal lookups work fine.

The symptoms are that the relevant ipfw command appears to hang, and the following appears in /var/log/system/log:

May 18 00:47:49 yaffle sudo: martin : TTY=ttyp3 ; PWD=/Users/martin ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/sbin/ipfw add deny log ip from to any in via ppp0
May 18 00:47:54 yaffle lookupd[3631]: DNSAgent: dns_send_query_server - timeout for
May 18 00:48:04 yaffle last message repeated 2 times
May 18 00:48:04 yaffle lookupd[3631]: DNSAgent: dns_fqdn_query_server - query failed for

Is there any easy way to avoid this. I have lookupd configured to use the following search order:

CacheAgent, FFAgent, NIAgent, DNSAgent, NILAgent
