VERSION

version 1.08

SYNOPSIS

  use strict;
  use POE qw(Component::Client::DNSBL);

  die "Please provide at least one IP address to lookup\n" unless scalar @ARGV;

  my $dnsbl = POE::Component::Client::DNSBL->spawn();

  POE::Session->create(
        package_states => [
            'main' => [ qw(_start _stop _response) ],
        ],
        heap => {
                  addresses => [ @ARGV ],
                  dnsbl => $dnsbl
        },
  );

  $poe_kernel->run();
  exit 0;

  sub _start {
     my ($kernel,$heap) = @_[KERNEL,HEAP];
     $heap->{dnsbl}->lookup(
        event => '_response',
        address => $_,
     ) for @{ $heap->{addresses} };
     return;
  }

  sub _stop {
     my ($kernel,$heap) = @_[KERNEL,HEAP];
     $kernel->call( $heap->{dnsbl}->session_id(), 'shutdown' );
     return;
  }

  sub _response {
     my ($kernel,$heap,$record) = @_[KERNEL,HEAP,ARG0];
     if ( $record->{error} ) {
        print "An error occurred, ", $record->{error}, "\n";
        return;
     }
     if ( $record->{response} eq 'NXDOMAIN' ) {
        print $record->{address}, " is okay\n";

     }
     print join( " ", $record->{address}, $record->{response}, $record->{reason} ), "\n";
     return;
  }

DESCRIPTION

POE::Component::Client::DNSBL is a POE component that provides non-blocking DNS blacklist lookups to other components and POE sessions. It uses POE::Component::Client::DNS to perform the requested queries.

Only IPv4 lookups and URI/RHS lookups are supported and unless a DNSBL zone is specified the component will use zen.spamhaus.org.

CONSTRUCTOR

spawn

Takes a number of parameters:

  'alias', set an alias that you can use to address the component later;
  'options', a hashref of POE session options;
  'dnsbl', the DNSBL zone to send queries to, default zen.spamhaus.org;
  'resolver', optionally provide a POE::Component::Client::DNS to use;

Returns an object.

METHODS

session_id

Takes no arguments. Returns the ID of the component's session.

shutdown

Terminates the component.

lookup

Performs a DNSBL lookup. Takes a number of parameters:

  'event', the name of the event to send the reply to. ( Mandatory );
  'address', the IPv4 address or domain to lookup ( Mandatory );
  'session', send the resultant event to an alternative session, ( default is the sender );

You may also pass arbitary key/values. Arbitary keys should have an underscore prefix '_'.

event may also be a POE::Session postback.

INPUT EVENTS

shutdown

Terminates the component.

lookup

Performs a DNSBL lookup. Takes a number of parameters:

  'event', the name of the event to send the reply to. ( Mandatory );
  'address', the IPv4 address or domain to lookup ( Mandatory );
  'session', send the resultant event to an alternative session, ( default is the sender );
  'dnsbl', optionally override the configured DNSBL for this particular lookup;

You may also pass arbitary key/values. Arbitary keys should have an underscore prefix '_'.

event may also be a POE::Session postback.

OUTPUT EVENTS

The component will send an event in response to lookup requests. ARG0 will be a hashref containing the key/values of the original request ( including any arbitary key/values passed ).

If a POE::Session postback was specified, then the hashref will be the first parameter of the arrayref given as ARG1

  'response', the status returned by the DNSBL, it will be NXDOMAIN if the address given was okay;
  'reason', if an address is blacklisted, this may contain the reason;
  'error', if something goes wrong with the DNS lookup the error string will be contained here;
  'dnsbl', the DNSBL that was used for this request;
