Description

I encounter a problem with bind since 2.5.0, it stops responding to queries each time an openvpn disconnection/connection as a tun client is made to another ovpn server (so the pfsense here is an openvpn client to another pfsense)...

hereunder what happen in log when named stop responding...
filterdns9294: merge_config: configuration reload
[...]
named53473: network: error: creating IPv4 interface ovpnc2 failed; interface ignored
filterdns9294: merge_config: configuration reload
[...]

the only way to restart bind, without rebooting pfsense, is to kill named process via console, then start again via interface

to circumvent the problem :
- I changed the way openvpn is working by setting a TAP connection instead of TUN, so that interface is always ON even when reconnecting (it is working now for 40h without problem)
- I also removed the need to use filterdns by setting plain IP in aliases instead of FQDN

btw :
- the interfaces are set to "Listen on ALL interfaces" in bind config
- responding to queries and transferring zones thru vpn is required (and acl are sets)
- i upgraded to bind 9.16.12 with no more success to the problem
- unbound is totally disabled, only bind is used (there is no unbound process involved here)
