DNSBLOG(8)							    DNSBLOG(8)

NAME
       dnsblog - Postfix DNS blocklist logger

SYNOPSIS
       dnsblog [generic Postfix daemon options]

DESCRIPTION
       The dnsblog(8) server implements an ad-hoc DNS blocklist lookup service
       that will eventually be	replaced  by  an  UDP  client  that  is	 built
       directly into the postscreen(8) server.

       With  each  connection,	the dnsblog(8) server receives a DNS blocklist
       domain name and an IP address. If the address is listed under  the  DNS
       blocklist,  the	dnsblog(8)  server logs the match and replies with the
       query arguments plus a non-zero status.	Otherwise it replies with  the
       query  arguments	 plus  a  zero status.	Finally, The dnsblog(8) server
       closes the connection.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).

CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
       Changes to main.cf are picked up automatically, as dnsblog(8) processes
       run for only a limited amount of time. Use the command "postfix reload"
       to speed up a change.
