Well, Paul Vixie wrote bind and he started ISC later to provide more organization to his work and supporting it further, so I really dont see a problem with consdering BIND to be ISC product even if original acronym was more general (though I doubt he could get it trademarked because of all that)..William, Paul Vixie did NOT write the original BIND. The first BIND version (4.3?) was written by the CSRG at UC Berkeley by Kevin Dunlap who was on loan to CSRG by Digital (who also employed Paul at that time).
My apologies. I did not know this detail. I knew about BIND being written by somebody from Digital when working at Berkeley but always assumed it was Paul Vixie back then as well. -- William Leibzon Elan Networks email@example.com
