Subject: Question about MS DNS server dropping packets from client
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
While trying to test corner cases of the DNS implementation of Microsoft, I've noticed that if I send DNS packets that cause FORMERROR return values, the DNS server will silently drop further packets that would trigger a FORMERROR. I can still send and get replies to valid packets from the machine that is blocked for FORMERROR packets. If I wait a couple of minutes or restart the DNS server service, I can get one reply for a FORMERROR packet again, then I'm blocked again.
What's going on there, and more importantly, is there something I can do to turn this of?
