DNS and DNSBL Settings

DNS Settings

Name servers
The IP addresses to use as name servers. If this is empty the application will default to using the /etc/resolv.conf file. Default: Empty

Use TCP
Use TCP instead of UDP for DNS queries. UDP is faster, but is limited in size. DNS lookups will automatically use TCP for zone transfers (AFXR) and when a response was truncated.
Default: FALSE

Sctrict query mode
If the hostname that was looked up is not actually in the answer section of the response, the DNS lookup will return an empty answer section, instead of an answer section that could contain CNAME records.
Default: FALSE

Randomize name servers
Randomize the name servers list each time it is used.
Default: FALSE

DNS port
The UDP/TCP port to use when making DNS queries.
Default: FALSE

Timeout
Timeout value to use for socket connections (in seconds).
Default: FALSE
