Creating A DNS Cache With djbdns

Post date: May 5, 2007, 22:05 Category: Installing Views: 3714 Comments
Tutorial quote: Building a local DNS cache will speed up your internet connection since the time for the translation job (converting domain names into IP addresses) will become negligible with the assumption that the DNS cache gets the information from the parent DNS.

How To Install And Use The djbdns Name Server On Debian Etch

Post date: January 24, 2008, 11:01 Category: Installing Views: 2998 Comments
Tutorial quote: djbdns is a very secure suite of DNS tools that consists out of multiple parts: dnscache, a DNS cache that can be used in /etc/resolv.conf instead of your ISP's name servers and that tries to sort out wrong (malicious) DNS answers; axfrdns, a service that runs on the master DNS server and to which the slaves connect for zone transfers; and tinydns, the actual DNS server, a very secure replacement for BIND.

Speedup DNS requests with a local cache

Post date: April 26, 2006, 09:04 Category: Network Views: 2714 Comments
Tutorial quote: One common server bottleneck is DNS lookups. Many common server tasks such as from looking up hostnames to write Apache logfiles and processing incoming mail require the use of DNS queries. If you're running a high-traffic system it might be useful to cache previous lookups.

How To Patch BIND9 Against DNS Cache Poisoning (Debian/Fedora/CentOS)

Post date: July 29, 2008, 09:07 Category: Security Views: 3571 Comments
Tutorial quote: Dan Kaminsky earlier this month announced a massive, multi-vendor issue with DNS that could allow attackers to compromise any name server - clients, too. These two articles explain how you can fix a BIND9 nameserver on Debian Etch and Fedora/CentOS so that it is not vulnerable anymore to DNS cache poisoning.

Running A MySQL-Based DNS Server: MyDNS

Post date: January 23, 2006, 15:01 Category: Network Views: 3561 Comments
Tutorial quote: In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS, a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files like, for example, Bind or djbdns. This has the advantage that you can easily use web-based frontends to administrate your DNS records. You could even write your own frontend, e.g. using PHP, to interact with the MyDNS database. MyDNS simply reads the records from the database, and it does not have to be restarted/reloaded when DNS records change or zones are created/edited/deleted! This is a major advantage.

Tutorial quote: In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS and MyDNSConfig 3 on Fedora 10. MyDNS is a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files like, for example, Bind or djbdns. MyDNSConfig is an easy to use web-based interface to MyDNS. MyDNSConfig can create all types of DNS records that are available in MyDNS and adds features like user management and access privileges.

Installing MyDNS And The MyDNSConfig Control Panel On Fedora 8

Post date: December 9, 2007, 12:12 Category: Installing Views: 3215 Comments
Tutorial quote: In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS and MyDNSConfig on Fedora 8.

The advantage is that MyDNS simply reads the records from the database, and it does not have to be restarted/reloaded when DNS records change or zones are created/edited/deleted. A secondary nameserver can be easily set up by installing a second instance of MyDNS that accesses the same database or, to be more redundant, uses the MySQL master / slave replication features to replicate the data to the secondary nameserver.

Make Browsers Cache Static Files With mod_expires On Apache2 (Debian Squeeze)

Post date: March 10, 2011, 11:03 Category: Installing Views: 2682 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial explains how you can configure Apache2 to set the Expires HTTP header and the max-age directive of the Cache-Control HTTP header of static files (such as images, CSS and Javascript files) to a date in the future so that these files will be cached by your visitors' browsers. This saves bandwidth and makes your web site appear faster (if a user visits your site for a second time, static files will be fetched from the browser cache). This tutorial was written for Debian Squeeze.
