DNS lookup TXT record

Thu Oct 15, 2015 4:31 pm

Hi All,

I'm trying to look up the value of a TXT RR in a script but it seems [:resolve ...] can only look up records of type A (and possibly AAAA, possibly transitting via a CNAME or two).

Would really appreciate some help here. We have some data in DNS that we need to be able to look up which is stored in TXT RRs.

Kind Regards,

I have the same issue that I can not find any way to do this.

It can be very handy for things like retrieving your "real" IP
nslookup -type=txt

:resolve only has options "server server-port domain-name"

If there are others? Maybe a feature request ?
