When setting up DNS records, perhaps your DNS host is awesome (I like and fastmail.fm) and allows you to adjust the TTL within a decent range (1 second to 24 hours - tbh I’m not sure if there’s an upper limit? However, having too high of a number set for TTL and your local and ISP caches will last longer, and therefore your friend may not be able to see your Glorious TODO App™.

Likewise, having too low of a TTL may overload the server with the frequency of queries.

Here is a captured UDP datagram in which you can see dnsmap was querying for You can easily see the Question Record - the name of the record, type, and class. Surely you knew this was coming - you can easily create your own DNS forwarder with Twisted’s names.

With the textbook definition out of the way, let’s see it in action!

I ran dnsmap against for funsies while running the earlier described sniff function from scapy.

As well, being able to look up the full DNS zone file is rarely allowed. There’s this handy tool called dnsmap that literally brute-forces subdomain lookup: only returns about 4 results even though - as one of the managers of the site - I know there’s way over 20.

So don’t exactly expect the results to be comprehensive, nor fast since it’s literally searching based on a built-in word list one at a time without multithreading.
