Configuring DNSSEC On BIND9 (9.7.3) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10

Configuring DNSSEC On BIND9 (9.7.3) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10

This guide explains how you can configure DNSSEC on BIND9 (version 9.7.3 that comes with Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10) on Debian Squeeze and Ubuntu 11.10. It covers how to enable DNSSEC on authoritative nameservers (master and slave) and on resolving nameservers, creation of keys (KSKs and ZSKs), signing of zones, key rolling with rollerd, zone file checking with donuts, creation of trust anchors, using DLV (DNSSEC look-aside validation), and getting your DS records into the parent's zone.

PDNSD HowTo - A DNS Caching Personal Server (Fedora 16)

PDNSD HowTo - A DNS Caching Personal Server (Fedora 16)

PDNSD is a non authoritative caching DNS server. It maintains a disk cache of the queries that your system performs and subsequent queries will be faster from the cache. It is safe enough to be used on a personal Unix/Linux system as a home Desktop or a Laptop.

Installing PowerDNS (With MySQL Backend) And Poweradmin On Debian Squeeze

Installing PowerDNS (With MySQL Backend) And Poweradmin On Debian Squeeze

This article shows how you can install the PowerDNS nameserver (with MySQL backend) and the Poweradmin control panel for PowerDNS on a Debian Squeeze system. PowerDNS is a high-performance, authoritative-only nameserver - in the setup described here it will read the DNS records from a MySQL database (similar to MyDNS), although other backends such as PostgreSQL are supported as well. Poweradmin is a web-based control panel for PowerDNS.

How To Run Your Own DNS Servers (Primary And Secondary) With ISPConfig 3 (Debian Squeeze)

How To Run Your Own DNS Servers (Primary And Secondary) With ISPConfig 3 (Debian Squeeze)

This tutorial shows how you can run your own DNS servers (primary and secondary) with ISPConfig 3. To do this, you need two servers with two different public IP addresses and with ISPConfig 3 installed. I will use Debian Squeeze for both DNS servers here to demonstrate the base system setup process and ISPConfig 3 installation, but once you have ISPConfig 3 installed on your servers, the configuration inside ISPConfig 3 is identical, no matter what distribution you use.

Setting Up A Spam-Proof Home Email Server (The Somewhat Alternate Way) (Debian Squeeze)

Setting Up A Spam-Proof Home Email Server (The Somewhat Alternate Way) (Debian Squeeze)

Email spam is a huge problem. I have found for myself quite a simple solution, however it'll take some time to "migrate" completely over to it. The solution is to create a unique email address everytime I have to give an email address to someone else or to some website to sign up. If I want an account at twitter, I'd use "www.twitter.com@MYDOMAIN.COM". For webbased services, I use the full domain name incl. subdomain (www) on the left of the @ (some poorly designed websites do not recognizes the www. as valid email address, for those I just leave it away).

Installing MyDNS-NG & MyDNSConfig On Debian Squeeze

Installing MyDNS-NG & MyDNSConfig On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial will describe how to install and configure MyDNS-NG and MyDNSConfig 3 on Debian Squeeze. MyDNS-NG is a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files. The advantage is that MyDNS simply reads the records from the database, and it does not have to be restarted/reloaded when DNS records change or zones are created/edited/deleted. A secondary nameserver can be easily set up by installing a second instance of MyDNS that accesses the same database or, to be more redundant, uses the MySQL master / slave replication features to replicate the data to the secondary nameserver.

Clean djbDNS DNS Server On CentOS - dnscache And tinydns - A To Z

What is djbDNS? And why do we use djbDNS? There is a new point of view to serve the dns service - each of the dns server functionalities is a separate service, like authority, cache, forward and so on. The other difference is the daemon-tools which will rapidly restart services to prevent zombies.

How To Run Your Own Name Server With ISPConfig 3 And Fast Hosts

How To Run Your Own Name Server With ISPConfig 3 And Fast Hosts

This tutorial shows how you can run your own name server for domains that you register with fasthosts.com. Of course, this works with every other registrar as well, although the procedure might differ a little bit. We will use the ISPConfig 3 server as the primary name server and also acting as the secondary. This may be suited best to a single server setup. To do this, you need one server with ISPConfig 3 installed and a Fast hosts account.
