Special Forums IP Networking Dig only returns MX records in +trace mode Post 302942445 by cjcox on Tuesday 28th of April 2015 06:04:56 PM
shouldn't you use:

Code:
dig -t mx fnb.co.za.

Technically at least under Linux, man page says that:

Code:
dig fnb.co.za. mx

works as well (resource name followed by type)

Even though I had success with the order you mentioned too... but it's not documented that way. At least on on my dig man page.

NAME
gnutls_x509_crl_sign2 - This function will sign a CRL with a key SYNOPSIS
#include <gnutls/x509.h> int gnutls_x509_crl_sign2(gnutls_x509_crl_t crl, gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer, gnutls_x509_privkey_t issuer_key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig, unsigned int flags); ARGUMENTS
gnutls_x509_crl_t crl should contain a gnutls_x509_crl_t structure gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer is the certificate of the certificate issuer gnutls_x509_privkey_t issuer_key holds the issuer's private key gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig The message digest to use. GNUTLS_DIG_SHA1 is the safe choice unless you know what you're doing. unsigned int flags must be 0 DESCRIPTION
This function will sign the CRL with the issuer's private key, and will copy the issuer's information into the CRL. This must be the last step in a certificate CRL since all the previously set parameters are now signed. RETURNS
On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS is returned, otherwise a negative error value. REPORTING BUGS
