Installing BIND

Post by bloodgod589 » Sat Aug 07, 2004 5:05 pm

Is thee an easy way or do i have to stay up for countless nights?

I'm a big fan of [url=http://www.zytrax.com/books/dns/]this[/url it's not finished yet but there is enough there to get a pretty comprehesive bind setup on the go, including dynamic updates from a dhcp server.

I don't advise using webmin for anything, I used it once to add a cron job and instead of once a week the job ran once a minute. The interfaces for configuring the complex config files like apache and proftpd are a mess and the simple configuration files are easy to configure by hand.
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?
