For some local networks, I run dhcpd using assigning fixed IP address
based on the client MAC. I am also running bind for the local
networks. At some sites where I am doing this, I'm using webmin for
maintaining DNS (or I actually have my clients doing this). I've don't
use or recommend webmin for DHCPd since I've just had too many problems
with it, so that is maintained by hand.
Naturally I'd like to coordinate this activity. When a new host is
added, it would be nice to ensure that the name and IP assigned in DHCP
is the same that is done with DNS.
I could write my own script for this, but I'm sure that similar scripts
have been written a thousand times, 980 of which are better than I would
write. Is there anything in ports or elsewhere that people could
(Some of the sites where I need this are mostly Linux based, but will be
moving to FreeBSD over time).
Sounds like you want to use dynamic DNS updates. I put a howto for this
