I set up pi-hole with unbound on my ubuntu 18.04 machine. I followed the
instructions by pi-hole.
Clients can reach websites with this method but after some time I get
timeouts. Pihole is still forwarding requests to 127.0.0.1 but it seems
that unbound doesn't answer anymore. Even on the host machine I get
dig pi-hole.net @127.0.0.1 -p 5353
; <<>> DiG 9.11.3-1ubuntu1.8-Ubuntu <<>> pi-hole.net @127.0.0.1 -p 5353
;; global options: +cmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
Only `systemctl restart unbound` solves this problem. Unbound is still
running and doesn't show any obvious errors though.
I posted on the pi-hole forums and added quite some information there so
you might want to check the thread .
I'm quite new to Unix so please tell me what information you need to
