View Full Version : DNS Message

03-12-2002, 06:23 AM
Of late, on switching on my computer, I get a small box on screen and contained within the box is the following :-

! DNS Buffer length >=1024

What is the message trying to tell me ? Everything seems to be normal.

WinME, 512 ram, 20gig HDD, IE5.5, AMD 1.0 gig processor.

Hi Tobas

Are you running Agnitum Outpost as a firewall on your PC? - if not please disregard the following message ....

That problem could be related to your DNS cache properties.

Open up Outpost then go to Options > Plug-Ins Setup, highlight DNS cache and then click on settings. Adjust settings to:

Limit DNS database to 100 records
DNS records expire in 7 days

Wow, spot on Jen.

Found DNS records set to 360, with 306 records to date and all set to expire in 100 days.

Drastic changes have been made so problem (not sure it was actually a problem though), should go away.

Cheers - well done!!
