Re: who are the root server operators?

Making the addresses public > will serve as a DDoS vector against the root operators.... moreover, duane wessels came to eugene last week to tell us that only 2.1% of the queries hitting F-root were valid. there's got to be a way to make that better. here's a question. is your authoritative name server set up properly? by that i mean: (1) is recursion disabled, and is it listed only in NS RR's, never in resolv.conf or dhcpd.conf files? (2) is fetch-glue disabled (or if not, does your firewall permit F-root to answer your sysqueries?) -- Paul Vixie
