Re: Setting Up Dns Server In Bsd

Deppends on what BSD you usethis answer... If you're using FreeBDS [haven't yet tryed OpenBSD, NetBSD etc] all you have to do is :
- edit your /etc/rc.conf file and add a line which says named_enable="YES", and if needed add another like named_flags="-u bind -g bind" (the second if you want to run named in a sandbox)
- do a sh make_localhost in /etc/namedb
- edit your /etc/namedb/named.conf and define at least a zone depending on your needs (master/slave). You could also define some ACLs to restrict access to your server
- write the files containing your zones, usualy located in /etc/namedb/s
- restart the daemon: # killall -HUP named or start it # named [named_flags]

A sample zone file is the one generated by make_localhost script, you could use it as a template. Don't forget to increment the serial number of the zone at each change !
