DNS forwarding bug for names with escaped periods in them



  • On a machine behind pfsense the command

    dig -t srv "_dns-llq-tls._tcp.john.pettitt.members.mac.com"

    Returns SERVFAIL but on a machine that uses an external bind server it returns

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    _dns-llq-tls._tcp.john.pettitt.members.mac.com. 86097 IN SRV 0 0 5354 pm-members.mac.com.

    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
    john.pettitt.members.mac.com. 86097 IN NS pm-members.mac.com.

    This issue stops "Back to my Mac" from working on any machine behind a pfsense box if the user name has a "." in it.
