DNS : reload nameserver information & raw dns documentat

Post by Mr_Smoke » Sun Jul 24, 2005 12:05 am

Hello,

I'm running Unreal in a chroot jail, and I've just realized that the resolv.conf in the jail still contained the two NS provided my my ISP. So I went to correct this so as to list *only* my own DNS.
Problem : how to *tell* unreal to read the resolv.conf again ? I've read somewhere in the FAQ that the set::dns::nameserver directive was ignored, so /rehash does nothing. Apparently, /rehash -dynconf didn't help either...

Reading the FAQ, I also found out about /raw dns. Unfortunately, I've been unable to find any information about this. So far I've figured :
/raw dns i => information about the resolver
/raw dns l => cache list
/raw dns c => cache clear
/raw dns => outputs some information ...
Some additional data on how to read this information would be welcome.

Cheers,
Mr_Smoke

You have to restart the server.

Ok, that's what I'd feared ... Thanks :)
