Disable Open DNS Recursion (DNS Server)

Postby hrdedicated » Sat Jun 01, 2013 12:14 pm

If you are running bind DNS server, then you might want to check your dns server statistics with dnstools.com. You dont want to allow recursive lookups to performed on your server other than local IP. It can also slowdown your server.

Steps:

1. Login to server as root user.
2. Vi /etc/named.conf
3. Search for Under Options { place a line
Options {
recursion no;
.....

4. Then restart the bind
5. service named restart
