Troubleshooting Common DNS Misconfiguration Errors

Troubleshooting Common DNS Misconfiguration Errors

Installing MyDNS & MyDNSConfig 3 On Fedora 10

Installing MyDNS & MyDNSConfig 3 On Fedora 10

In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS and MyDNSConfig 3 on Fedora 10. MyDNS is a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files like, for example, Bind or djbdns. 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. MyDNSConfig is an easy to use web-based interface to MyDNS. MyDNSConfig can create all types of DNS records that are available in MyDNS and adds features like user management and access privileges.

Speeding Up DNS Access In Regions With Very Low Infrastructure

Speeding Up DNS Access In Regions With Very Low Infrastructure

Let's say you are on an expensive satellite link that can barely provide enough bandwidth for your company's Internet access and you will want to do whatever you can to get as much as possible out of this link. Moreover, occassionally you lose power from the utility company, long enough for your UPS to run out. There are a few things you could do to get a lot more from your link. In this article, we will be looking at speeding up your dns requests by keeping a cache of responses to your dns requests on your hard disk. Subsequent dns request are then served from the cache and because a copy is on disk, you don't lose it when there is a power outage or a reboot.
