Can you dig it….!

DIG domain information groperCan you dig it.!

Dig (domain information groper) gateway is a flexible tool part for the DNS name servers. It performs DNS lookups and displays the answers that are returned from the name server's that were queried. Most DNS administrators use dig to troubleshoot DNS problems because of its flexibility, ease of use and clarity of output. Other lookup tools tend to have less functionality than dig.

Dig is used with command-line arguments; it has batch mode of operation as well to reading lookup request files. A brief summary of its command-line arguments and options is printed when the -h option is given. Unlike earlier versions, the BIND9 implementation of dig allows multiple lookups to be issued from the command line performing an NS query for "." (The root).
The default for dig via ${HOME}/.digrc. This file is read and any options in it are applied before the command line arguments.

Description The fifth edition covers BIND 9.3.2, the most recent release of the BIND 9 series, as well as BIND 8.4.7. BIND 9.3.2 contains further improvements in security and IPv6 support, and important new features such as internationalized domain names, ENUM (electronic numbering), and SPF (the Sender Policy Framework). Whether you're an administrator involved with DNS on a daily basis or a user who wants to be more informed about the Internet and how it works, you'll find that this book is essential reading.

Description The fourth edition of DNS and BIND covers the new 9.1.0 and 8.2.3 versions of BIND as well as the older 4.9 version. There's also more extensive coverage of NOTIFY, IPv6 forward and reverse mapping, transaction signatures, and the new DNS Security Extensions; and a section on accommodating Windows 2000 clients, servers and Domain Controllers.

Description The DNS & BIND Cookbook presents solutions to the many problems faced by network administrators responsible for a name server. This title is an indispensable companion to DNS & BIND, 4th Edition, the definitive guide to the critical task of name server administration. The cookbook contains dozens of code recipes showing solutions to everyday problems, ranging from simple questions, like, "How do I get BIND?" to more advanced topics like providing name service for IPv6 addresses.

Description DNS on Windows Server 20003 is a special Windows-oriented edition of the classic DNS and BIND, updated to document the many changes to DNS, large and small, found in Windows Server 2003. Veteran O'Reilly authors, Cricket Liu, Matt Larson, and Robbie Allen explain the whole system in terms of the new Windows Server 2003, from starting and stopping a DNS service to establishing an organization's namespace in the global hierarchy.

Description This special Windows-oriented edition of the classic DNS and BIND is a guide to one of the Internet's fundamental building blocks: the distributed host information database responsible for translating names into addresses, routing mail, and many other services. Covers server setup and maintenance along with Windows-specific topics like integration between DNS and Active Directory, conversion from BIND to the Microsoft DNS server, and registry settings.

This Open Source Guide is about DNS and (mostly) BIND 9.x on Linux (Fedora Core), BSD's (FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD) and Windows (Win 2K, XP, Server 2003). It is meant for newbies, Rocket Scientist wannabees and anyone in between. This Guide was born out of our first attempts a number of years ago at trying to install a much needed DNS service on an early Redhat Linux system. We completed the DNS 'rite of passage' and found it a pretty unedifying and pointless experience.

The Concise Guide to DNS and BIND provides you with the technical depth and expert-level information you need to understand and administer DNS and BIND. Domain Name System (DNS) is a distributed Internet directory service. It is used mainly to translate between domain names and IP addresses, and to control Internet email delivery. Most Internet services rely on DNS to work, and if DNS fails, Web sites cannot be located and email delivery stalls. BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Daemon) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols.

The BIND 9 DNS Administration Reference Book is based on Internet Systems Consortium's BIND 9 documentation including the Administrator Reference Manual (Bv9ARM). In addition to hundreds of improvements (most integrated upstream) and major reorganization of the original documentation, new content, examples, detailed indexing and more cross-referencing were added. This book is an excellent resource which provides a convenient way to find BIND 9 documentation and to learn DNS basics.

Dru Lavigne's new book is simply the best FreeBSD how-to book out there. This book is well written with specific instruction on how to make things work. Make no mistake about it.....Whether you are a novice or a system administrator, you need this book in your library. Unlike other FreeBSD books out there which basically copy the online handbook, Dru Lavigne compiled literally hundreds of FreeBSD tricks in this new book. You won't be disappointed!
