BIND security fix update fails test
Following on from my post here I thought I would ask in a seperate post if anyone could think of a reason why this might be happening.
I have rebooted both servers etc, but the tests are still reporting consecutive source ports rather than random ?

Might be also worth trying their cli test.
Thats from my homebox uplinking to OpenDNS.
chaz@pegasus ~ $ dig +short porttest.dns-oarc.net TXT
"188.8.131.52 is GREAT: 27 queries in 4.3 seconds from 27 ports with std dev 20231"

Again from home I get Great on both tests through OpenDNS, once I get home I'll do the test using some different servers to see if I can work it out.

Read somewhere it might be my router causing the problem but I cant see how it would re-map outgoing ports which were random to a linear incrementation?

Which router are you using? My netgear WGR614v4 is fine.
EDIT: Can you pm me an IP of one of your servers and we can see what its throwing up? (Understand if not.)

Ok, I switched out the existing router for my old bt business one. It doesnt sync nearly as fast, but the dns test now says great.
Thanks for your help kmount.
