Allow-Request in Bind

Recently i figured out that using Openvpn on my Android phone failed to properly query DNS using my Bind9 service.
Following entries appeared in syslog in my attempts to access http sites:

client query (cache) ‘’ denied

I had to do the following to make it work.

Add following line in /etc/bind/named.conf.local

// Managing acls
acl internals {;;; };


// Allow recursive queries to the local hosts
allow-recursion { internals; };

in /etc/bind/named.conf.options

And it worked!
