How to Close Open DNS Servers

How do I check my system?
Go to www.dnsreport.com

Edit the /etc/named.conf file such.

And then look for:

key “rndckey” {
};

After this add the following, replacing mainIP and secondaryIP with your systems nameservers.

acl “trusted” {
mainIP;secondaryIP;127.0.0.1;
};

After that’s done you want to add the section that says only the trusted is allowed for certain functions. Check your options area and make sure you add the following:

allow-recursion { trusted; };
allow-notify { trusted; };
allow-transfer { trusted; };

Then Restart DNS
