Hi Bjørn,

thanks a lot for your reply. Does those resolvers have support for 
DNS-Tap compiled in already? Also, does LuCI interface have support for 
configuring it already? I was unable to find it in the OpenWRT to 
configure and I had to compile the resolvers with dnstap support and use 
socat to be able to transfer it using TCP/IP layer. Did I miss something?
