[Pdns-users] Master/Slave : Failed updates & controlsocket problem

Hi all,

I just started implementing pdns ( on Debian) and have 2 
questions I can't find an answer for:

If records in my supermaster are changed while the superslave server is 
down or unresponsive, there seems to be no retry to notify the slaves.
Can this behavior be tweaked ?  I don't want to miss updates when one of 
the servers is unreachable for some reason.

If I try to start pdns_control I get this error:
# pdns_control ping
Fatal error: Unable to connect to remote '/var/run/pdns.controlsocket': 
Connection refused

Both on a chrooted and non-chrooted install. rec_control on a 
non-chrooted recursor does work.
(The socket does exist, and I'm running the command as root)

If anyone can shed a light on this two, I would be very happy ;-)

Thanks in advance,
