I am using bind on my linux machine. I have a dialup account with dial
on demand. I don't want, that, when bind is starting, it always
connects to a root nameserver (and my machine connects to my ISP).
Up To Version 8.1.2 I solved this problem with adding some forwarders
to my config and setting »forward only«. Then, it didn't try to
connect a root nameserver (or something else) at startup.
But in Version 8.2.2 this solution doesn't work any more. Now, at
startup, he even wants to connect my forwarder(s) and when I turn my
forwarders off, bind wants to connect a root nameserver. The setting
»dialup yes« doesn't solve my problem, too.
Is there any solution, how I can tell bind, that he doesn't try to
connect to any other namserver (wether forwarder nor root nameserver)
at startup, so that my machine doesn't dial my ISP ?
