  • Program: dnsdist
  • Issue type: Feature request

Short description

Instead of dropping the query or sending a REFUSED answer, it would be nice to be able to forge a NXDomain answer.


Some users believe this might be a good way to prevent the same client from asking the same question over and over again.


local dbr = dynBlockRulesGroup()
dbr:setQueryRate(30, 10, "Exceeded query rate", 60, DNSAction.Nxdomain)
