Hi All,

I'm having some troubles with BIND. I run a 2.1.5 system as a web 
cache, router and name server for my 2 class "C" networks. I have 2 
problems. The system has been running  for 18 months using 1.1.5, 
2.0.5, 2.1, 2.1.5. These are the problems.

1) the secondaries can't do a zone transfer. They are FBSD 2.1
systems at a local university who is our ISP. (we have parmanent
connection via modem) Other systems can do zone transfers, but the 2
secondaries can't. Systems that can are running some type of

2) every couple of days, the 2.1.5 system seems to loose the ability
to lookup names. The modem is connected, but "ftp"
returns "host unknown". restarting named doesn't help, but a full
reboot gets us back online.  If the host name is in the in the DNS
cache, you can reach it OK, but new DNS lookups fail. The strange
symptom is that the modem won't redial when you reboot. Normally a
reboot will make the modem hangup, then redial, but it doesn't hang
up. I have to switch it off, then it will redial.

Please help, I can't find the solution.
