Recursive queries that named does for a client are different than your
machine as a dns client reaching out to Google's recursive service.
You need to have UDP & TCP port 53 open to your recursive server(the one
running named) first of all. And if any network element within your
network limits the size of UDP packets, you will have problems with
On this box running named, try this:
dig +trace www.msn.com
dig +trace imperial.ac.uk
After dig gets a copy of the root servers from the local named, it will
do the same type of queries that a recursive name server does.
