Hi There,

I am building some kind of forwarding DNS server using your library.
Thanks for the great library.

It was working fine on Windows 7.
But not working on Windows 8.

So I tried your simple forwarding DNS server example.
It was working fine.
But when I tried to use a custom DNSClient it's not working again.
Seems like sending query is fine but not getting an answer.

This is the code.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Sockets;
using ARSoft.Tools.Net.Dns;

namespace dclt
class Program
    static DnsClient resolver = null;

    static void Main(string[] args)
        resolver = new DnsClient(IPAddress.Parse(""), 6);

        using (DnsServer server = new DnsServer(IPAddress.Any, 10, 10, ProcessQuery))

            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to stop server");

    static DnsMessageBase ProcessQuery(DnsMessageBase message, IPAddress clientAddress, ProtocolType protocol)
        message.IsQuery = false;

        DnsMessage query = message as DnsMessage;

        if ((query != null) && (query.Questions.Count == 1))
            // send query to upstream server
            DnsQuestion question = query.Questions[0];
            DnsMessage answer = resolver.Resolve(question.Name, question.RecordType, question.RecordClass);

            // if got an answer, copy it to the message sent to the client
            if (answer != null)
                foreach (DnsRecordBase record in (answer.AnswerRecords))
                foreach (DnsRecordBase record in (answer.AdditionalRecords))

                query.ReturnCode = ReturnCode.NoError;
                return query;

        // Not a valid query or upstream server did not answer correct
        message.ReturnCode = ReturnCode.ServerFailure;
        return message;


Did I make any mistake?
Or is there any problem with Windows 8?
