DNS Problems or DNSBench Incompatibility?



  • All,

    Before I beat my head against the wall trying to figure out the issue, I'm just wondering if anybody else is seeing the following behavior.  Basically when I run DNSBench I see a large amount of reliability issue's with the cached results for the servers, leading the test to state –>"More than 20% of resolvers were unreliable?".

    I don't recall having this issue in previous versions of pfSense.  I've tried multiple PC's, as well manually setting my DNS on my local machine to google (8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4) and the same behavior remains.

    I'm also running a pretty base install of pfsense, but it is the latest version. I'm also not seeing anything in the logs, but I will admit that networking is not my strong suit.

    Any feedback/help would be appreciated.

  • If the issue remains once you switch to another DNS server, have you tried bypassing PFSense to see if it's even PFSense that is doing it?

    Thanks for the reply.  The next step is to bypass pfsense and see what happens.  However, I won't be able to test that until later tonight, so I figured I'd touch base here and see if anybody had the same/similar issue.
