3.  Standard Record Enumeration – As result we can get SOA record, Name Server(NS), mail Host (MX), IP ranges that the company is using and what servers can send emails (SPF).
Syntax - dnsrecon -t std -d domain 
Ex- dnsrecon -t std -d

4.  Srv Records Enumeration - we enumerated the SRV (Service) records.  we know that they are using a jabber (XMPP). We also obtained the IP and the ports that these services are running.
Syntax - dnsrecon -t srv -d domain
Ex- dnsrecon -t srv -d

5. Zone Transfer - The security problem with DNS zone transfer is that it can be used to decipher the topology of a company’s network.Specifically when a user is trying to perform a zone transfer it sends a DNS query to list all DNS information like name servers,host names,MX and CNAME records,zone serial number,Time to Live records etc.Due to the amount of information that can be obtained DNS zone transfer cannot be easily found.
Syntax - dnsrecon -t axfr -d domain
Ex- dnsrecon -t axfr -d

6. Top Level Enumeration – It shows top level domain name with their Ip address.
Syntax - dnsrecon -t tld -d domain
Ex - dnsrecon -t tld -d

7.  Reverse Lookup - Reverse DNS lookup is the determination of a domain name with the associated IP address. DNSRecon can perform a reverse lookup for PTR (Pointer) records against IPv4 and IPv6 address ranges.
Syntax - dnsrecon -r start IP-end IP
Ex - dnsrecon -r

8. Saving Enumeration Result - To save all enumeration result we would you following command.
Syntax - dnsrecon -d --xml filename
Ex- dnsrecon -d --xml mr
