This looks like a simple solution. I've looked at unbound, which
seems to be easy to set up the same way.
I've found a simpler solution which seems to work - I've used the
OpenDNS nameserver addresses in my resolv.conf. Their website state
"OpenDNS is the largest and most reliable _recursive_ DNS service
...". It appears that the previous problems with typo correction etc
have been sorted out. I no longer get error messages about URIBL
Would this be suitable for a SOHO network? I'd be interested to hear comments.
