    Troubleshooting a dnsseed installation is somewhat difficult because there is more to it than just adapting the code.
    You're going to need to be answering requests on port 53.
    You're going to need to have the NS record in Global DNS referring to the hostname of the system where dnsseed runs.
    You're going to need to have the configured name of the nameserver matching in the parent zone.

    If you've configured a dnsseed to run on ns.foocoin.test with the zone named dnsseed.foocoin.test, then you can test it with a remote connection by doing a 'dig @ns.foocoin.test dnsseed.foocoin.test'.

    You can also check the debug.log of a hard coded seed to see if bitcoin-seeder is crawling properly.

    What are you seeing exactly?

Best Regards,
