Hi,

My server is down, there is no others alert msg in /var/log/messages,only ALOT of these msgs appeared(at below)

What wrong with my DNS, or some1 is DDOS attacking my dns?

So far, i only allow my server to do recursive lookup:
allow-recursion {
127.0.0.1;
xx.xx.xx.xx;

Seem like nothing wrong with my named.conf, is too many attack from different IPs, and is not feasible to block all the IPs..

Anyone can HELP.

Thanks man,
-Qaz

Hello,

Those messages are normal and indicate that those IPs are trying to use your DNS but are not allowed due to configuration options.

Is your DNS server for public use, or do you limit the usage to certain clients?

Cheers,

Bestondoa
