Projects / ext-Dns


ext-Dns is a core library, an extensible forward DNS server, and some additional tools designed to create DNS server solutions which are able to do any additional operation at the resolution level (running commands, rewritting replies, gathering stats, and so on), without any limit. It provides a ready-to-use solution in case you want to build a DNS server which takes additional actions at the resolution level in an easy way. That is, its design is focused on allowing people to implement whatever they like when a request is received, freeing them from most of the details which involves handling DNS protocol.

      Release Notes: This stable release includes lots of new features in the core library as well as inside the ext-dnsD forwarding server. It is now possible to handle replies to MX, NS, or SOA records from inside child resolvers or to have several records being replied to a query. This release supports getting lots of useful information about ext-dnsd status through an internal (root-only available) file.

        Release Notes: This is the first public production-ready stable release.
