AT&T DSL/MPD issue fixed

January 6, 2008 at 9:54 am Leave a comment

The MPD developers have fixed the issue requiring the dnsnosec option in both Monowall and PfSense that I posted about previously. The fix was only put into MPD5, but Manuel Kasper (lead developer of Monowall) back-ported the fix to MPD 3.18 and now has a pre-release version of Monowall with that fix in it. Once he gets a few reports in verifying that it works properly without the dnsnosec option, he’ll release version 1.233.

So, I don’t imagine it will be very long before the PfSense developers will also have a new version with it included as well.

This is what I love about the open-source community: People working together to overcome issues.  I imagine that if a closed-source product had this issue that they would be happy with a “workaround” (like the dnsnosec option), but the open-source community wants to fix things the “right way”.
