I'm not pretending to be any kind of expert in this, but as with any software not used as it should it does get cloudy. Security in DNS is already an issue with care to be taken in who can see what and how it gets updated or what not- particularly with slave DNS' involved. I can't say what security issues it would raise, but I wouldn't be implementing anything like that myself for the same reasons. I'd stick to hostnames and maybe services which it was designed for. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
