I've successfully built and installed PowerDNS 2.9.16 on my
NetBSD/sparc64 system running -current snapshot 20040305. I'm just using
the LDAP backend talking to an OpenLDAP server running on the same host.
I'm trying to use dnscache as the recursive resolver as although the
recursor builds with a little help, it doesn't run. dnscache builds and
installs, and is configured to run on loopback with my ISP's two dns
I can query my ISP dns servers directly for records, and also query
dnscache for the same records, works correctly.
I can query PowerDNS for records that I know are answered in LDAP but I
can't get PowerDNS to successfully answer queries via dnscache:
polymorph# env DNSCACHEIP=192.168.23.15 dnsqr a www.google.com
Mar 12 22:42:50 polymorph pdns: Recursive query for remote 192.168.23.15 with internal id 1 was not answered by backend within timeout, reusing id
Mar 12 22:42:50 polymorph pdns: Discarding untracked packet from recursor backend with id 7937. Contrack table size=2
Mar 12 22:42:53 polymorph pdns: Discarding untracked packet from recursor backend with id 7938. Contrack table size=3
What's puzzling me is that in the dnscache logs, I can see dnscache get
the query and return the answer immediately:

The only cause of this in the docs suggests the backend not answering
within a large period of time, which this doesn't look like to me.
