is there perhaps a problem with committs of the last 2 days ?

I use a local and caching DNS server. From /usr/src (not ports).

Since about 2 days I can't make dns queries via local nameserver.
To get dns requests I need to add my forwarders in /etc/resolv.conf.

But then one problem remains. knews can't connect anymore to
local NNTP server (leafnode+).

BTW, changing the Firewall progile to "open" didn't cure the problem
as well.

Am I the only one having this ??

BTW, as normal user I can't run ipfw l

But I think this is normal, or ?
