Problem with e-mail forwarding?

I'm wondering if anyone else is having trouble receiving
e-mail from their member account, ie- <user> <at> members.opennic.glue
or <user> <at> members.opennic.unrated.net.

A quick and dirty way of changing IP addresses?

I'm about to be changing IP addresses as Speakeasy issues a dedicated line 
to my home.  In this event, everything that exists for one of currently 
two IP addresses will naturally have to be reset to the new IPs.

Does anyone have a quick and easy way of doing this?  I suppose I could 
also do sed, but would rather not....

Re: A quick and dirty way of changing IP addresses?

I generally put the name of the server in my configs, rather than the 
actual IP address.  Then the only change needed is to update your hosts 
file.  Doesn't help you much for changing files the first time, but 
simplifies future changes.

.oss and .indy

Noticed that the status page on opennic.geek is showing these root servers 
offline.  Any need for somebody to fill in the blanks?

cannot resolve .gov

I'm running a name server which is slaved from some of the Tier 1 OpenNIC 
nameservers. I cannot resolve anything in .gov. I went to the site and found 
a Tier 2 nameserver (the one I was using was stale) and put it into 
resolv.conf. It can resolve .gov. Here are the results I get from .gov 
queries:

nameserver 192.168.25.1

Make sure the Tier 1 OpenNIC nameservers you're slaving off of actually 
are Tier 1 OpenNIC nameservers:

1)  Check the serial number of the root zone your server is using; it 
should be a very recent date.

2)  Check the list of servers you slave off of against the list on the 
web site.

If you're suffering from the same problem I went through, you'll find 
you're slaving off of a server which is no longer serving current 
OpenNIC data, but which is happy to lie about it and give you an old 
zone file which has the old root servers for .gov.  Which, so far as I 
can tell, were taken out of service on 10 Jul 2004.

Experimental migration

Hello everybody,

I hereby inform you that I'm going to attempt the migration of one of my
Opennic DNS servers from bind to djbdns, today.

By the way, if you have previous experience of such a migration, 
please share it.

Regards,

RE: Experimental migration

Don't let me stop you, but I would personally advise against it.  Read some
of his publishing on "the IPv6 mess" where he states there's no transition
plan--completely false, or A6 and DNAME records--simply because he doesn't
understand proper use of A6 records, he removes support for both.  The
examples he uses are obviously flawed, but he insists it would become
something of the norm.  Re: A6, the same is possible with CNAME records, but
do you see massive failures yet?  Besides, who cares if AOL's hostnames are
unresolveable?  And while he gives a fairly good analogy between MX and
IPv6, he takes almost every opportunity he gets to bash the IPv6 folks.  I'm
just not a big fan of djb.

Re: Experimental migration

Aaron--

While djb does appear to be a pompous ass who is very unyielding on
any issue stance but his own, one shouldn't shortchange
his programming skills nor the underlying simplicity of design and
function of his programs.  There are several patches available for
djbdns which implement IPv6 functionality and work around the issues
you bring up.
