FS#2341 - Feature Request: nslookup - support SRV queries

Could support for SRV requests be added to the patch

Currently I am working on setting up a service for freifunk which uses SRV records. Unfortunately I have to install bind-host and all it’s dependencies to make the DNS query. It would be great if the built-in busybox nslookup supported this.

@jow- seems to have done a bit of work on nslookup in the past.

Any support would be appreciated.

Hey @jow-

Thanks for doing this so quickly, but I'm a bit confused about patch 230-add_nslookup_lede.patch. Isn't it the patched version nslookup_lede.c (with musl compatibility) which is included in openwrt? At least when I build, nslookup_lede.o is built, but nslookup.o is not.

That extra applet went upstream as "nslookup big" into busybox a while ago. Will drop 230-add_nslookup_lede.patch and switch to nslookup big when the SRV support landed.

OK. Cool. Any chance that this can go into the 18.06 branch too?

Perry commented on 30.07.2019 14:27

I have created PR for the 18.06 branch.

Perry commented on 21.04.2021 17:48

The patch from Jo-Philipp is now part of Busybox 1.33.0. Also, in OpenWrt the 21.02 branch as well as master are currently both using Busybox 1.33.0.
