    Default Check DNSBL Access for Spam Blocker

    I see a notification triangle about "dnsbl not working". Seems it may be an intermittent thing as it is gone now. Anyway I googled and found the link below. I got the result shown. Now that the triangle went away I tried again with the same result.

    According to this page https://support.untangle.com/hc/en-u...r-Spam-Blocker I should run this.
    Code:
    [root @ homeuntangle] ~ # curl -s http://www.untangle.com/download/patches/generic/check_spam_health.sh | bash
    bash: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
    bash: line 1: `<html>'
    [root @ homeuntangle] ~ #
    I don't think that is what I should see. Is that page just out of date?

    Thanks

    Ran it anyway. Now I see this.
    Code:
    Testing dnsmasq ...
    [127.0.0.1] : DNS       FAILED (incorrect result)
    In the script I see this.

    Code:
    # check a normal lookup
        testServer $server "untangle.com" 'has address 74.123.31.30' 'DNS'
    Nslookup shows this.
    Code:
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name:    untangle.com
    Addresses:  2400:cb00:204
              2400:cb00:2048:
              104.20.2.248
              104.20.3.248
    or
    Code:
    [root @ homeuntangle] ~ # nslookup untangle.com
    Server:         127.0.0.1
    Address:        127.0.0.1#53
    
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name:   untangle.com
    Address: 104.20.2.248
    Name:   untangle.com
    Address: 104.20.3.248
    Is something spoofing me?

    Thanks

    If the DNS test is failing, the upstream DNS servers you've configured on Untangle's external interface are intermittently not working properly.

    *Edit* Hold a moment I think I spoke too soon, I need to check something.

    Confirmed, the script has a bug. It was never updated when Untangle.com changed web servers.

    Anyone that runs this script is going to see DNS as "failed" because it's expecting untangle.com to resolve to 74.123.31.30, and it's resolving to 104.20.3.248 and 104.20.2.248.

    Ya I am suspecting my "no completion piss poor isp". But I think the tool may need help. It might also be nice if the thing that triggers the triangle also triggered a log entry. Not sure it doesn't. But I don't know where to look.

    Thanks

    I have to agree, I am out of date but I consider it a feature.

    My isp has gone down 3 times since I started this thread. LOL

    No I mean the script is out of date.
    Its probably just checking the wrong IP.

    That's exactly what's happening.
