Could someone explain *what the real problem* is, if it exists/ed? I am definitely NOT a DNS expert, but I couldn't verify a "wrong" answer returned by ns.eu.net yet. >Otherwise, nsd is a very fine software :-) and I'm glad to see it used >in production. Why not trying it on NS.RIPE.NET? But _if_ there is a problem (and not simply a _different_ behaviour than bind would respond, due to an inconsistent configuration somewhere), then everybody would be better off to get it documented and fixed, I suppose? Wilfried. PS: I am very interested to get this sorted out, because we already have that creature doing business here, and I'm considering to use it for another service soon. Thanks....
