How To Install And Use The djbdns Name Server On Debian Etch

How To Install And Use The djbdns Name Server On Debian Etch

djbdns is a very secure suite of DNS tools that consists out of multiple parts: dnscache, a DNS cache that can be used in /etc/resolv.conf instead of your ISP's name servers and that tries to sort out wrong (malicious) DNS answers; axfrdns, a service that runs on the master DNS server and to which the slaves connect for zone transfers; and tinydns, the actual DNS server, a very secure replacement for BIND.

Installing MyDNS And The MyDNSConfig Control Panel On CentOS 5.1

Installing MyDNS And The MyDNSConfig Control Panel On CentOS 5.1

In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS and MyDNSConfig on CentOS 5.1. 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.

Lintrack As A LAN Gateway And An OpenVPN Bridge

Lintrack As A LAN Gateway And An OpenVPN Bridge

This tutorial will guide you through installation and configuration of Lintrack, a GNU/Linux distribution specialized in networking tasks. We will give two LANs access to the internet along with DHCP and DNS cache servers, and then we will connect our networks using OpenVPN in bridging mode. You should be running all these in well under an hour, thanks to the unified configuration interface of Lintrack.

Creating A DNS Cache With djbdns

Creating A DNS Cache With djbdns

Building a local DNS cache will speed up your internet connection since the time for the “translation job” (converting domain names into IP addresses) will become negligible with the assumption that the DNS cache gets the information from the parent DNS.
