[sf-lug] pdns-recursor

Thanks, Rick, for the tip. 

I've got 'unbound' installed and 
# ps aux | grep unbound 
tells me it's running.
It's running on host 'plug' that has IP address

.. but it's still not actually being used for DNS!
I can't seem to get the configuration figured out.
If I instruct my dhcp server (also running on 'plug') to direct clients to for dns, things fail.
I would have thought that part of the unbound configuration would be to direct it to an outside DNS server (or servers) where it could begin it's queries but the documentation makes no mention of such an entry.


Any help would be appreciated.
