Dear all,

  I wish to know efficient ways to query "resolver" and "lwresd". To my understanding, "resolver" is the iterative full DNS resolver, and "lwresd" is the lightweight resolver daemon.

  I plan to use "dig" to query both of them. I am not able to find a way to query "resolver" using "dig".

  For "lwresd", I ran "./lwresd -f". Then, I ran "./dig @localhost -p 921 google.com" on another terminal to query lwresd. However, I could not connect to the "lwresd".

  It will be great if anyone can share the approach on how to set up the client and server. It should be a very easy problem to solve, but I could not find any useful information about it online...
