You could also use a canned solution from a webpage.


It will provide essentially the same information as the Dshield php script
minus the attacks and hits to ports. There are also several other very
useful tests and probes available on that page to help you gather further
information. I use dnsstuff.com quite often when researching attacks or
network problems.
