Hi, I am trying to setup "unbound" on my netbook which is a client on my home network. I use this netbook for travel so the dhcp address I use will be different at different places. The netbook is running Linux Mint 17.1 (Rebecca). I installed "unbound" but am having problem with configuration which is posted below. My /etc/resolv.conf has the following entries nameserver 127.0.0.1 search home.net When I start my computer, the unbound starts as a service. At this point I cannot go anywhere on the Net or get any system updates. Once I stop the unbound service, I can go out onto the Internet and get updates. Please let me know how to fix this problem. My goal is to have a recursive caching server on my netbook. Thank you in advance for any help and advice. Subba Rao PS - I would also like to include AD blockers (at the bottom of the config) into this configuration at a later stage. At first I want unbound to work. ------------- unbound.conf ------------- # Unbound configuration file for Debian. # # See the unbound.conf(5) man page. # # See /usr/share/doc/unbound/examples/unbound.conf for a commented # reference config file. # # The following line includes additional configuration files from the # /etc/unbound/unbound.conf.d directory. include: "/etc/unbound/unbound.conf.d/*.conf" server: verbosity: 1 ## Specify the interface address to listen on: # interface: 10.0.0.1 ## To listen on all interfaces use: interface: 0.0.0.0 root-hints: /etc/unbound/root.hints forward-zone: name: "." # Google forward-addr: 220.127.116.11 forward-addr: 18.104.22.168 # OpenDNS forward-addr: 22.214.171.124 forward-addr: 126.96.36.199 # Level 3 Communications forward-addr: 188.8.131.52 forward-addr: 184.108.40.206 forward-addr: 220.127.116.11 forward-addr: 18.104.22.168 forward-addr: 22.214.171.124 forward-addr: 126.96.36.199 # Blocking Ad Server domains.
