I am running BIND (from base system) on my FreeBSD 5.3 machine. The box is
connected to outer world via ADSL connection (tun0 device). If the named is
started when the machine is connected to the internet, then everything is OK,
I get this by saying netstat -n -a:

udp4       0      0  X.X.X.X.53             *.*
udp4       0      0           *.*
udp4       0      0            *.*

but at boot time, the named starts before the PPP connection is started, so
the tun0 interface is not up yet. So that's why I get this:

udp4       0      0           *.*
udp4       0      0            *.*

In BIND manual, it says:

"If no listen-on is specified, the server will listen on port 53 on all interfaces."

I also tried to specify the ADSL IP address in named.conf (it is static), but it is
still a no go. I don't have such problems with other daemons! Any ideas?
