Zone transfer

I tried to get a zone transfer via

DnsClient.Resolve("example.com", RecordType.Axfr);

 

but get only a partial result (no SOA at end).

Is this due to the DNSClient implementation or is this a limitation on DNS server side?

 

Supplement:

calling "nslookup ls" sends the complete zone, so it can't be a limitation on DNS server, right?

Sorry for my delay, I was absent due to a mourning in my family.

At the moment the library does not support transfers of zones bigger than 65,535 bytes. But I'm working on a solution for that issue. I think it will be released in the next two weeks.

Support for zone transfers of big zones was added in release 1.7.2.
