Hi guys,

I was not aware, that I can run "bind9" and "rbldnsd" at the  same  time
on the same machine, exactly, I was thinking  they  will  conflict  with
each other...  ;-)

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day/Evening

As long as they use different IP addresses (alias address) or different
ports. (I've got mine using different ports).

One trick, if you only need the rbldnsd for local use, bind it to an
alias of the localhost address (EG

EG: in your rbldnsd config add a non-standard port specifier (say '57')

RBLDNSD="- -u spamd \
        -r $RBLDNSD_CHROOT \
        -b -a \
        -b \
        -c2m -f \
        -s /log/stats \
        -w data \
        dbf-surbl.mydomain.org:dnset:dbf-surbl.rbldnsd \

Then in your bind9 config file create a 'type forward' zone that
points to that non-standard port:

zone "dbf-surbl.mydomain.org" {
        type forward;
        forward only;
        forwarders {
       port 57;

More detailed example available upon request.
