[Pdns-users] Recursor has trouble with congested links?

	I've been trying to use the PowerDNS recursor on my family's home
network. We have a slow 256/64 ADSL link and a few users who frequently
clog it up with lots of downloads and uploads. During these times I've
found that the recursor times out or something and returns a negative

I've set "client-tcp-timeout=60" in recursor.conf, but that's dealing with
the wrong side of the connection isn't it?

Is there anything that can be done to improve the recursor's resilience to
a clogged internet connection?
