WOW! Thanks for the info Bert :) 

The Debian server that hosts PDNS Cursor doesn't apply any iptable rule... but this server is behind a firewall (MikorTik Router) and this firewall has tracking feature turned on...maybe because of that!!! and my uplstream connection is only 1 Mbps full fiber.

Anyways, my concern is to know that if I did the tweaks for the file descriptor mentioned earlier and run dpkg -i (yourlastestversion3.3-1).deb and fix the max-cache-entries and packet-entries would be enough??
