Keith,

The most useful online test for DNS is at:

One important thing to do is make sure that recursion is disbaled on your
DNS. Cache pollution is possible if you run the DNS wide open to queries.

New story on FoxNews.com about an old (2002) attack on DNS servers. It
claims that the attack will be resurfacing. I think they do a pretty decent
job of explaining it.

Is there a way that one can check to see that their DNS server is configured
correctly?

Keith.
