Hi everybody,I am attempting to configure a BIND 9 name server that will be authoritative for certain domains which will listen exclusively on IPv6.This same box will also be a caching server for a handful of networks (IPv6 and IPv4).The way I have it set up is that the authoritative and caching services each run a single instance of BIND on it's own IP address, with both instances each doing exactly what they are supposed to do.However, how can I make the FreeBSD (7.0) startup scripts load both instances of BIND, each with it's own configuration?I've read through the Administrators handbook for BIND and numerous newsgroup postings about 'views', but I don't think this is what I want. It seems 'views' are more for split-DNS, segregating internal access and external access to the same service. That is not what I am after.Any pointers much appreciated.
I did something very similar. Run one of the bind instances in a jail -- especially with a little firewall rdr rules and similar trickery to redirect traffic into the appropriate instance (which gets you past the lack of IPv6 support in jail(8)). Works beautifully. Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 7 Priory Courtyard Flat 3 PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Ramsgate Kent, CT11 9PW
