Bug #2953

host command cannot find MX records on parabola (bind)

Description

On parabola after installing bind:

$ host -tmx tutanota.com
$ ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

On ubuntu after installing bind9:

$ host -tmx tutanota.com
$ tutanota.com mail is handled by 0 mail.tutanota.de

I'm setting up a send-only mail server (opensmtpd) on lime2. I cannot send mails because MX records are not found.

according to the manual, the -t option accepts an argument, and
-m option appears to require an argument, and there is no -x
option

nontheless i ran the command, and it gives the response
that you expected

$ host -tmx tutanota.com
tutanota.com mail is handled by 0 mail.tutanota.de.

i should also add that "on parabola" is almost meaningless;
because there is no single parabola system - it is very
important to specify the arch and init-system - any number of
problems could exist with one arch/init combination, but not
necessarily repeatable on others

Do close this issue. I guess there's a problem on my system, both armv7 and x86_64. Maybe there's a problem with my ISPs.

  • Status changed from unconfirmed to not-a-bug

maybe your router or firewall is blocking the request
