comment When DNS doesn't cache
Hang on - surely my ISP has a DNS cache? My PC's DNS server address is the ISP's DNS?

Still can't quite understand why we were seeing no/yes cycles all day for those domain name resolutions. Unless they set the TTL to something very low during maintenance.

I was using the term propogate to mean when the cache pulls new information from its information source server. I know there's no push going on here.

That was the point of the question - I don't have a good understanding of how DNS works, and I'd like to get a better one ;-) So are you saying that there aren't any DNS cache servers out there and that it's only clients that cache DNS entries? Because if so, that does help explain stuff and puts the 'blame' back on our DNS provider. We use a monitoring service to keep an eye on the domains and I guess they don't use DNS caches, but go directly to the hosting server otherwise the monitoring wouldn't be much use.

DNSstuff shows TTL=172800 on those domains and we were getting no/yes lookups over the past two days over and over again. Our customers using the domains do so on a daily basis and had these intermittent issues. So I'm still a little confused. I'd have thought that once it 'came back' then the DNS cache should resolve the name for at least the next 48 hours.

comment Can't connect to STunnel when it's running as a service
I think I see what you mean. I'm already using a localhost connection to STunnel though. MS Exchange won't allow me to use localhost in its POP3 connector, so I'm using 127.0.0.1 - same thing I thought. It does feel like a firewall issue to me too, but I can't for the life of me find out what to do to get it working. If it does end up being a firewall issue, then it's blocking a localhost connection to the service STunnel.

comment Can't connect to STunnel when it's running as a service
I tried setting the STunnel service to run as the Administrator user, to see if this would use the same firewall settings as the desktop version. Still no joy :-|

comment Can't connect to STunnel when it's running as a service
I'd thought this one through. Unfortunately it's a Small Business Server and it's not entirely obvious how to do this as it's all done through Routing and Remote Access, not the usual Firewall tab on the network settings.

Yes, I've done that on XP too and it works on XP! I'm getting the problem on a Windows 2003 Server SP2 box. It's baffling me. Nothing in any of the event logs when it's running as a service.

I've appended an stunnel.log from the working and non-working processes. The Non-working one just never seems to receive a connection ??

comment Can't connect to STunnel when it's running as a service
foreground = yes caused the server not to start. Maybe because it's a 'Unix only' option in the manual and I'm running Windows.

I've edited the original to show the stunnel.conf. Any input would be appreciated, thanks.
