Hi Wouter and thank you for spotting that.  I completely missed that I had
Ipv6 still enabled in the config.

I have also enabled TCP as per your suggestion.

Hi Paul,

You have ipv6 enabled (#do-ipv6: yes at the default) and you have tcp
disabled.   You should consider do-tcp: yes since the DNS occasionally
needs to use TCP, but that is not the cause of your socket errors.

Best regards,
