Re: What is EDNS0?

Sorry for the unclear response. EDNS0 is what we call the DNS extensions that were added via RFC 2671. In the past, the PIX enforced a 512 byte limit to DNS queries but as of this RFC, it is now valid to have DNS queries that exceed this limit. So, we added a new fixup to the PIX to support this change. See the following from the release notes:
