Hi all!!

There is someone of you who knows how to send command to dnsdist from command line??
I’m trying add Pool Rule like:

dnsdist --client -e 'addPoolRule({"aaaaa.22a"}, "abuse")'

and work!  Yes, but … I got an error like:

Connecting to
Fatal error: EOF while reading message

How can I improve my line?

Thanks a lot.
