So generally it seems impossible to have both DNS seeds running on same IP
address. Too bad.
Ok, I'll switch to serving only testnet DNS on this server for now, as this
seems to be a much bigger problem than mainnet. Later I might buy second IP
to setup mainnet DNS also.


Best regards,
Alex Kotenko
