Ok, now I'm confused.
I said " FORMERR means the remote server server replied that the query had a
Rfc 2136 says " The name server was unable to interpret the request due
to a format error"
The query response was from the modem (remote server). So what is wrong with
this interpretation? No where in the rfc does formerr ever refer to the
format of a response.
Does formerr also apply if the caching name server receives bad data?
Because that is not covered under any of the scenarios within the RFC for
the use of the formerr rcode.
