Hi All,

I have a odd thing going on here. I have a slave DNS server setup on an NT
box that transfers the zones very slowly when I enable security (allowing
TCP & UDP port 53 and others that I need). I can do a reload and watch the
zones update themselves very *slowly* - sometimes hours or even days. I also
noticed that the reverse lookup file doesn't refresh at all when I do a
reload. However...

When security is taken off (meaning no ports locked down), all files,
including zones and reverse files, refresh within seconds when I do a

This is very strange.  Anyone have any thoughts/ideas...?
