Hi Melinda,

Thank You for the fix. I am able to install it successfully now.

I have our Caching DNS server running on one of our servers.

I have tried below 2 procedures to test the integration of getdns with our
Caching server. But it is not successful. Could you please correct me where
I go wrong

Proc 1:

./getdns_query @<Server:53> www.zone.com A ( or ) ./getdns_query
@<Server#53> www.zone.com A

The query is *NOT successful* and i get below timeout response.

SYNC response:
  "answer_type": GETDNS_NAMETYPE_DNS,
  "just_address_answers": [],
  "replies_full": [],
  "replies_tree": [],
Response code was: GOOD. Status was: All queries for the name timed out

All done.

The query is not reaching our Caching server which runs of port 53.

Proc 2
with python

./get-ip.py @<server>:53  www.zone.com A

I get core dump error

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

We are testing caching server in one of the trending DDI solutions.
Currently we are planning to automate the testing procedures. We identified
getdns would be useful in doing so. Can you please explain us how getdns
would be useful in doing so.
