DJBDNS is a collection of Domain Name System tools. It includes several components:
- The tinydns program is a fast, UDP-only DNS server.
- The axfrdns program is a fast, TCP-only DNS server. This is useful for transferring zones to secondary name server or bind server.
- 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.
