DNS resolve not working for myqnapcloud.com / BAD (HORIZONTAL) REFERRAL / DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN



  • Hi there,
    generally speaking pfSense is working beautifully with DNS resolve set up having 127.0.0.1 as the DNS server. And I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my new QNAP NAS which has let me to believe that pfSense does resolve everything correctly but myqnapcloud.com. For whatever reason that website just doesn't load for me. As soon as I bypass pfSense (e.g. viao NordVPN connection) the website loads.

    I then started to dig deeper into the problem with the command prompt:

    dig: too many lookups
    

    Does anyone have a clue what might cause this prob?

    Weird part for me is that the DNS lookup shows this for myqnapcloud.com

    Results
    Result	Record type
    134.119.234.146	A
    2a00:1158:2d:300::92	AAAA
    Timings
    Name server	Query time
    127.0.0.1	408 msec
    
    

    So everything seems to be fine - except for the very slow lookup...

    Any idea on how to get this working? Or is it my ISP that blocks this very single domain? Again - everything else seems to be working just fine...

    Thanks!

    That is your problem right there... their dns is Messed up!!

    Tell them to fix it.

    Ok, but how come that probably everyone of you can access the website normally? Even I don't have a problem as soon as I use a VPN or some other internet connection (e. g. at work)? Shouldn't be the problem more consistent and affect a lot of you?

    Can you give it a try and dig myqnapcloud.com? Do you get the same error?

    Best

    Because they have more than just the 1 NS that is bad.. Look up what BAD (HORIZONTAL) REFERRAL is, and you will understand why it takes long to resolve. So at somepoint you will ask one that is not messed up - you hope ;)

    I am not showing the bad referral currently - maybe they fixed it.

  • @johnpoz said in DNS resolve not working for myqnapcloud.com / BAD (HORIZONTAL) REFERRAL / DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN:

    Because they have more than just the 1 NS that is bad.. Look up what BAD (HORIZONTAL) REFERRAL is, and you will understand why it takes long to resolve. So at somepoint you will ask one that is not messed up - you hope ;)

    Last week I was working from a different office with the QNAP connected to the internet perfectly. Didn't have any problem at all. Yesterday I moved back to my office and things went back to normal - as it still couldn't connect to myqnapcloud.com ... ☹

    I've tried a couple of things: To deactivate pfBlockerNG, activated DNS forward and cloudflare / 1.1.1.1 as DNS server but had no luck. However the DNS lookup in pfSense seemed to work fine:

    Result	Record type
    134.119.234.146	A
    2a00:1158:2d:300::92	AAAA
    
    Timings
    Name server	Query time
    127.0.0.1	0 msec
    

    A quick dig +trace request for myqnapcloud.com showed that the server now should be accessible ...

    But I still couldn't access it. So I looked up "RRSIG" and read some thing about DNSSEC. I then deactivated the DNSSEC support in the DNS Resolver. Now it's working but I don't really know if I like the fact that I've had to disable it. Is there any way around it? Or maybe some kind of setting that helps me to enable it for all the other websites but myqnapcloud.com?

    And by the way: This is in my custom options:

    server:
    ssl-upstream: yes
    do-tcp: yes
    forward-zone:
        name: "." 
        forward-addr: 1.1.1.1@853
        forward-addr: 1.0.0.1@853
        forward-addr: 2606:4700:4700::1111@853
        forward-addr: 2606:4700:4700::1001@853
    server:include: /var/unbound/pfb_dnsbl.*conf
    log-queries: yes
    

    I can't recall if 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 were in there before or if it changed while searching for an alternative approach to make it work. Basically I just want to have pfSense to resolve DNS, thus using localhost/127.0.0.1 - should I remove the forward-zone part?

    Thanks a ton!

    Dude your using tls, you can not resolve if your going to use tls

    That domain is still all jacked up - its a MESS..

    They got rid of the horizontal - but they still have delegation problems

    amazonaws.com to us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com: The server(s) for the parent zone (amazonaws.com) responded with a referral instead of answering authoritatively for the DS RR type. (205.251.192.27, 205.251.195.199, 2600:9000:5300:1b00::1, 2600:9000:5303:c700::1, UDP_-_EDNS0_4096_D_K)
    

    And they have AAAA for their NS, but no glue for them.

    They are still resolving and having no issues with dnssec enabled on them.. But in your setup you posted your forwarding over tls for everything. If you "forward" having dnssec enabled it is pointless.. If you forward - where you forward to is either doing dnssec or they are not, having it enabled in unbound would just cause extra queries and provide nothing.

    having dnssec enabled only makes sense when you resolve..

    having dnssec enabled only makes sense when you resolve..

    Hey Johnpoz,

    thanks for getting back to me. Just to get this right: I didn't mean to forward everything over TLS. I just tried everything to get the domain myqnapcloud.com to work. I now hope to have the resolver back in place and working. But I'm really unsure about the "forward-zones" part in custom options. Do you mean that? Should I just delete it? Or is there anything else I have to switch to have the DNS resolver working like it should be?

    Thanks!

    You should remove everything from options - and why exactly are you using pfblocker? Remove that until you are sure resolving is working how it should... Default of the box setting are fine.

    If if you have 1 bad domain that you have issues to resolve - you could always just do a domain override for that specific domain..
