comment How to refer DNS queries to another NS?
If I only have a primary zone, how can I change the delegation without changing the NS in the domain registrar?

comment Bind outgoing SOCKS-server traffic to a specific IP
I realized that the LD_PRELOAD trick is never going to work, since the SSH command is just the client program that makes the connection to the SSH server. And it's the server the one that forwards the packets. So forcing the client to bind to a given IP won't make any difference.

comment Bind outgoing SOCKS-server traffic to a specific IP
I found this page daniel-lange.com/archives/… where they point to two working examples of that. I tried one of them (the one that supports x86_64) but it doesn't seem to work. I'll try adding some debug messages to the code to see what's going on.

Would it be possible to use the LD_PRELOAD trick to overwrite the getaddrinfo function with a custom one?

comment Why is DNS failover not recommended?
Look here for an updated discussion on the subject. The failover is now done automatically by modern browsers.

comment Is round-robin DNS a possible solution for high availability?
According to the links you gave, it seems that it does work. At least for HTTP clients (which is what I care about right now). All modern browsers and even lower level HTTP clients fail-over to another IP in the list.

I understand that clients always get both IPs from the NS. It's just that by default they choose the first one in the list. But what if the first one is down? will they try with the second one?
