Thank you for the response - I'll reconfig my firewall.
This brings up the question, though: where is EDNS coming into play?
My understanding is that EDNS is a Microsoft Server 2003 extension, but
I'm only running Mac computers here, no Microsoft. Are the root
servers running Windows Server 2003? Or does this only cause a problem
when I try to resolve a site whose primary DNS is running Windows
And why would this problem have only started occurring a few days ago
to me (and to Scott Haneda, who also reported it)? Why would a
Microsoft feature break things for those of us who aren't using
Thanks for any info. I just want to get my facts straight.
