Question:

I'm trying to run nsupdate on my Windows machine using a text file as input, but it's not working. The same updates are working OK from a Linux client.

Answer:

It's most likely that the send command in your text file isn't being recognized. Check for the end of line character following it in your text file. Most UNIX editors automatically add this, but many Windows editors don't.
