  • not seeing any issues like that. What is line 93 in your /var/unbound/unbound.conf file?

  • When doing the recent change to actually implement the unbound advanced options, I noticed that the text that a user puts in the Advanced box (which becomes the custom-options section) is implemented by the underlying code putting each white-space-separated bit (each word) onto a separate line in the unbound config. That seemed a bit of an odd thing to do, but I did not like to change that code!
    Prior to my "fixes" the text in the Advanced box was stored in the pfSense config, but never actually made it into unbound.conf
    Now that it gets into unbound.conf people will see errors if it is wrong.
    Perhaps first remove anything in the Advanced box and see if that helps.
    Then someone can fix up/sort out in what form the Advanced box text should be written to unbound.conf

  • this auto populates advanced box

  • all i know was my config was working just fine on weds 11/5 snapshot upgraded to fri and had to enable forwarder for dns

  • The code Phil referenced was a copy/paste from dnsmasq, which uses its advanced field differently since it needs those as command line arguments, not in a conf file. The problem was your advanced options were never used prior to a few days ago, and once that was fixed, they were put in wrong. That did need to be output differently.

    I just pushed a fix for that. gitsync or upgrade to a snapshot on the 16th or newer and you should be in good shape.
