This is great!  Thanks for the pointer!

Now, what am I missing to get my queries to go there?  I have this in my dnsdist.conf:

rl = newRemoteLogger("")
addAction(AllRule(), RemoteLogAction(rl))

And, I've started ProtobufLogger.py (as is) with:

$ python ProtobufLogger.py 4242

(Obviously, these are running on the same machine.)

But I get no connections on the socket.

Incidentally, I just came across this:

addAction(AllRule(), LogAction("dnsdist.log", false, true, false))

Which I tried instead, just to see if it could also work for my purposes.  Unfortunately, I didn't see any entries in there either.  Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?  Presumably, I'm missing something in my dnsdist.conf.
