FreeBSD Install DJBDNS Server

DJBDNS is a collection of Domain Name System tools. It includes several components:

  1. The tinydns program is a fast, UDP-only DNS server.
  2. The axfrdns program is a fast, TCP-only DNS server. This is useful for transferring zones to secondary name server or bind server.
  3. The dnscache program is a local DNS cache. It accepts recursive DNS queries from local clients such as web browsers. It collects responses from remote DNS servers.

Sample Configuration Setup

ns1.nixcraft.in -
ns2.nixcraft.in -

Install DJBDNS on ns1.nixcraft.in

Type the following command:
# portsnap fetch update
# cd /usr/ports/dns/djbdns
# make install clean && rehash

Make sure you select IPv6 patch if you need to provide AAAA dns address for your domain.

    Cool article and all. I just though to mention that you can’t have more than one second anything. If it comes before it’s first – after and it’s third. ;)
