Jay Moore <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> spake thus:

I'm running sendmail on my 5.2.1 system, and have a number of DNSBLs set up in my sendmail configuration. I am not currently running BIND (or any other nameserver), and therefore have configured my system to use one of my ISP's DNS servers.

I've noticed that each attempted connection to my mail server now generates a flurry of DNS requests from my mail server to my ISP's DNS server.

I'd like to streamline this process, but I don't really want to take on DNS administration. I've heard about caching DNS servers, and "tiny DNS", and I wondered if they might suit my needs.

Comments, or recommendations??


Running bind as a caching only nameserver is pretty trivial and fairly
fool proof. Lots of good docs on the web and should only take a few
minutes to get configured. Have not had any experience with TinyDNS so
can't comment on that one.

If you want to use djbdns, you'll want to run dnscache rather than tinydns - which is designed for publishing DNS information.
