Net_DNS2 Version 1.3.2 Released

I’ve released version 1.3.2 of the PEAR Net_DNS2 library- you can install it now through the command line PEAR installer:

pear install Net_DNS2

Download it directly from the Google Code pageĀ here.

Or, you can also add it to your project usingĀ composer.

Version 1.3.2

  • added support for the EUI48 and EUI64 resource records (RFC7043).
  • fixed how we handle the return values from socket select() statements; this wasn’t causing a problem, but it wasn’t quite right.
  • added some error messaging when the socket times out).
  • before we cache the data, unset the rdata value; this was causing some JSON errors to be generated, and we don’t need the data anyway.

RBLTracker: Custom RBL Profiles

Now selecting which RBLs to use with RBLTracker is even easier than before!

As of today, customers can create custom RBL Profiles which let them select from over 60 RBLs, 20 URIBLs, and the Google Safe Browsing database, and then apply this profile to multiple hosts, removing the need to customize each host separately.

Customers can even mark one of their RBL Profiles as the “default” profile, and it will automatically be used anytime a new host is added to the system- either manually, or using the bulk host loader.

How Does This Work?

From the RBL Profiles section, give the new profile a unique name, and click “Add RBL Profile” to select which RBLs to use:


Then either edit a host and select this new RBL Profile from the drop down, or select the RBL profile when adding a new host:
