Caching-only name server is neither a primary nor secondary name server (it is not an authority) for any zone. , it saves data that comes through its cache. This data is called nonauthoritative. Each server is a caching server, but by the words caching, we understand that it is neither a primary nor secondary name server for any zone. arpa, but that does not count). • Root name server is an authoritative name server for the root domain (for the dot). Each root name server is a primary server, which differentiates it from other name servers.

You can try to find another example of compression in the packet for yourself. com. 6 Inverse Query Inverse queries must not be mistaken for reverse queries. With inverse queries, for example, the IP address is translated back to the name, but the search is based on an A type RR. Reverse translation is based on a PTR type RR. Not all name servers support inverse queries. They are specified in RFC 1035. Inverse query is an obsolete query. 7 Methods of RR Transfer via a DNS Packet A single DNS packet may contain one or several RRs.

Authoritative: Server is not an authority for domain .... 0. .... = Truncated: Message is not truncated .... 1 .... = Recursion desired: Do query recursively .... 1... = Recursion available: Server can do recursive queries .... 0.. = Z: reserved (0) .... 0. = Answer authenticated: Answer/authority portion was not authenticated by the server .... .... 3 Question Section DNS query packets mostly contain only one section: it is a question section for one question (QDCOUNT=1). The question section consists of three fields: • QNAME contains a domain name.
