[Unbound-users] Can't Bind Socket Error

Thanks Andreas....

We wanted to ensure that the system was "tuned" due to the amount of DNS
clients that would be using it.  Roughly 8,000 endpoints are querying the
pair of Unbound instances at this point.

I wasn't sure how "robust" the defaults were out of the box as our
experience with other types of software have always been that the default
configurations are for much smaller usage than what we need. 

Take care,

I assume you have an internal instance up and running and have good reasons
no not use default values.

Otherwise I suggest to start with an /empty/ unbound.conf and set only
necessary values.
Unbound has good defaults...
Or check, you are using most of them until you really need to change

At first I would remove any interface / outgoing-interface setting on a host
with only one ip-address.
