Network DNS daemons

Does anyone know the command to start the DNS Daemon.

I looked in the /etc/init.d/inetsvc file and it tells me what the text should look like. When I go to open the corresponding files they are encoded and I can't read them.

So is there a command that will start the DNS daemon?

If not how do I get around or through the encoding problem?

The standard name of the DNS daemon is named.

I don't understand what you meant by that? Please explain.

I don't know what platform you are on, but on Solaris, named or in.named automatically starts if it finds the /etc/named.boot file.

This is a configuration file for DNS services on the machine.

The man pages for named should provide some information. Or you can go to http://www.bind.org/ for information too.

If you have everything configured already, just call the named binary and it will start ("named" or "in.named" usually does the trick depending on your platform/version you're running )

lets say it found it in /usr/sbin/named

then type
