Description Kaj J. Niemi 2005-01-14 04:20:20 EST
Description of problem:
The configuration NetworkManager creates for named forces the source
port for name service queries to 53/udp. This does not work with
braindead firewall people who believe 53/udp is only used for name
servers (not clients), this isn't a problem when using glibc as it
uses high ports as any other unprivileged application would. It would
be better if query-source was set to "query-source address * port *;"
