• help with dns.js

    From Nelgin@VERT/EOTLBBS to All on Fri Jul 7 00:28:26 2023
    This is more a Deuce or DM question but if anyone else can help, feel free.

    I cannot figure out how to use dns.js, basically...I would like to take an IP, reverse it, add a domain name and then look up against a specific server and get an A record or NXDOMAIN returned.

    For such a simple query I suppose I could use a DIY method, but it looks like it should be possible but I'm having problems constructing the correct calls.

    Any helps would be appreciated.

    dns.js is for asynchronous/non-blocking name look-ups. If you don't need that, then use resolve_ip() instead.

    That's what I did in the end. Thanks.
