Forum OpenACS Q&A: Tinydns with Postgresql backend

Posted by xx xx on
Is anybody out here using djbdns (tinydns) with the (internet)domainnames in a PG table and a script to create the tinydns "data" file from the table entries? If so, would you be willing to share the code?

Thanks for any pointers.

I never have, but sure, Google says that people are certainly doing that, e.g., MySQLdns.

There also seems to be sqldjbdns (for use with PostgreSQL) from c. 2000, but its approach of serving queries directly from the RDBMS, rather than writing the data out to djbdns's native CDB format, sounds unlikely to be the right idea for anything other than dynamic DNS.

I suppose Rob Mayoff's djbdns tools and other related notes might also be useful to you.

Let us know what you end up using, I'm curious.

If you're still looking and willing to deal with MySQL there's a great network manager called Maintain. You should really check it out.
