Mathias, thank you very much for your comprehensive instructions!
Just one question: Harry suggested that, in order to overcome the below
DNS related problems, the TTL would have to be adjusted (lowered).
However, the TTL seems to be the only time value not covered by the
command provided by you.
Is it really the TTL that is the culprit or is it rather the first time
value (something like "Refresh value" in english)?
Do you know this?
