[Unbound-users] issue with unbound 1.4.6 win32 package

Wed Aug 4 13:48:03 CEST 2010

I have installed unbound 1.4.6 win32 package with the default options on 
both Windows XP Professional SP3 and Windows Vista Ultimate SP2.

Using the unbound dns server ( I cannot browse to, I get a host name lookup failure error.

If I switch back to my ISP's DNS servers it works fine.

Here is my service.conf contents...

# Unbound configuration file on windows.
# See example.conf for more settings and syntax
	# verbosity level 0-4 of logging
	verbosity: 0

	# on Windows, this setting makes reports go into the Application log

	# specify the interfaces to answer queries from by ip-address.
	# The default is to listen to localhost ( and ::1).
	# specify and ::0 to bind to all available interfaces.
	# specify every interface[@port] on a new 'interface:' labelled line.
	# The listen interfaces are not changed on reload, only on restart.
