Dents -- Bind alternative?
Just saw an announcement for Dents ( http://www.dents.org/ ) on comp.os.linux.announce. This is supposedly a (future) replacement for BIND, as a DNS server. It has some cool ideas (dynamic zones, open storage interface, control interface, etc), but it looks like it's a work in progress. Has anyone looked at this? It seems like it could (theoretically) address several of the DNS issues that have been discussed here and on inet-access lately. I'm not quite sure I understand why these features weren't just contributed to BIND, but maybe it is time for a fresh start... Pete. P.S. Looks like one of the participants works for Mindspring, but there doesn't appear to be any association between this project and Mindspring. ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Todd Graham Lewis <firstname.lastname@example.org> Newsgroups: comp.os.linux.announce Subject: Dents v0.0.1 - a DNS server Date: Sat, 28 Nov 1998 12:59:06 GMT ANNOUNCEMENT ============ We announce the first public release of Dents, an implementation of the Domain Name Service, as defined in RFC 1035 and others.
