VMS VAX UCX V4.2 BIND Server Logging

Digital TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS VAX Version V4.2 - ECO 2
on a VAXserver 3100 running OpenVMS V6.2

is there a way of getting this server to log the IP addresses of requests?

Re: VMS VAX UCX V4.2 BIND Server Logging

If I remember correctly (has been 8 years now),
$ ucx set commun /force=conn
allows to force all services to give an alarm with IP address when they connect. But those without a service : ???

Re: VMS VAX UCX V4.2 BIND Server Logging

There is a bind service and all the log_options are already on (as seen in UCX SHOW SERVICE BIND/FULL). This does not produce any results.

If it's not too heavy :
tcptrace/port=/out=/pack=
and then find the connection requests in the trace file.

Re: VMS VAX UCX V4.2 BIND Server Logging

$tcpiptrace/out=trace.lis/port=local=53/brief /packet=n

could be suitable. It produces one line per packet. It appears to show the requests and the replies.

Re: VMS VAX UCX V4.2 BIND Server Logging

Don't have BIND over here but if you start tcpip$bind_server.exe it displays a usage that includes "-d debuglevel" (use param toto to get the usage).

And tcpip$bind_run.com contains the startup of bind and includes p1 p2 p3.

May be ucx is simular ?

Re: VMS VAX UCX V4.2 BIND Server Logging

UCX$BIND_STARTUP.COM does not start the program with parameters but

$ mcr ucx$bind_server.exe -h
Usage: named [-d #] [-p port]

so I wonder if this indicates a debug level of logging can be specified.

Re: VMS VAX UCX V4.2 BIND Server Logging

For future reference changing SYS$SPECIFIC:[UCX$BIND]UCX$BIND_STARTUP.COM

$ RUN 'image_directory'UCX$BIND_SERVER.EXE

changed to

$ MCR 'image_directory'UCX$BIND_SERVER.EXE "-d" 1


i.e specifying "-d" 1 on the command line does gives me logging of requests and responses.

Re: VMS VAX UCX V4.2 BIND Server Logging

either TCPIPTRACE or debugging logging give me results.
