         You missed the fact that he's running on WinNT which he didn't mention.
That DESTRUN is a dead giveaway to the fact that he's running a version
of BIND prior to 8.2.3.  That was one of the first things that I fixed on 8.2.3.
He needs to upgrade to the latest release of BIND 8.2.3 on NT.

         You don't get those kinds of choices on WinNT. The socket error relates
to it's inability to run ndc on NT and in fact the program is not there. That particular
error message about the sockets just got fixed for WinNT.  The error doesn't affect
the running of the server and can be safely ignored.
