Description JINMEI Tatuya 2016-08-31 00:53:30 CEST
If you configure unbound with refuse_non_local, e.g.:

	access-control: refuse_non_local

and send a query from this address so it will hit this ACL entry, you
can't see the response from dig:

% dig @ www.example.com     

; <<>> DiG 9.10.3-P4-Ubuntu <<>> @ www.example.com
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

although unbound certainly refused it:

[1472552720] unbound[4201:0] debug: refused query from ip4 port 50686 (len 16)

This is because sldns_buffer_flip() isn't called on return from
deny_refuse_non_local() in worker_handle_request().  You can fix it by
adding a call to 'flip' at that point, but I wonder whether it may be
better to do that in deny_refuse() rather than having all its
implicit/explicit callers do the job.  That would also be more
compatible with, e.g. what chaos_replystr() does.

Hi Jinmei,

Yes you are correct.  The empty UDP response is not good.  Fixed by calling flip in deny_refuse().

Best regards, Wouter
