• binkd log

    From Rick Smith@1:105/81 to All on Thu Mar 3 15:45:44 2022
    Hello All!

    While trying to sort out another error ive been looking at my binkd.log and I have noticed many errors in the log and I am hoping that someone may be able to send me in the right direction to track down what it means and maybe where I can look to sort it out?

    'getaddrinfo failed' Means your OS can't resolve the host name that binkd provided to it, to an IP address.

    That can have a number of causes, but if you put them in your binkd.config yourself, you probably made an error...

    Bye, Wilfred.

    i'm not sure but it looks like a dns error.

    i'm not sure but it looks like a dns error.

    Do you have a node like that looks similar to

    node 1:396/45@fidonet -md bbs.sursum-corda.com:24554 xxxxxxx

    Make sure the domain name you put here is working with whatever tool
    you have, nslookup or dig. The port number is optional and will use the
    24554 default, it should be separated from the hostname with a colon.

    My guess is you did a type on the hostname.


    That said, it looks like you might be relying on binkd's dns to do the resolving. To make sure your resolver is working

    To look up my bbs at 1:124/5016 I'd use

    $ dig f5016.n124.z1.binkp.net +short
    endofthelinebbs.com.
    192.138.210.158

    Hope that helps a little.
