If you have a smaller network and still want the ability to do this (e.g. singly-homed site) just route the networks concerned to nowhere on your gateway router ip route a.b.c.d w.x.y.z Null0 route add net a.b.c.d <local or null IP address> 1 This won't stop the DNS hack from polluting your servers (u/g the software :) but I don't think my Linux box needs to contact DNS pirates ;-} DH> -Dorn Hetzel DH> Epoch Internet Cheers, Lyndon -- Penis Envy is a total Phallusy.
