Information about DNS and network

Latest Posts

Do you love DNS? Do you Wireshark? Tshark? tcpdump? snoop? BIND? PowerDNS?! IPv6?!! CHMOD?!?!

My employer is looking for a hard core dns person.

Some attributes we’re looking for…

  • Must be eligible to work in Canada (sorry!)

  • Must know DNS and all things tcp/ip.

  • We use these things. Linux, Unix, Solaris, F5, BIND, PDNS, IPv6, VMWare.

  • Job can be anywhere in the great white north. You pick where you want to work. Jettison your pants, because as long as you’re awesome, you probably don’t have to go to the office anymore.

  • Communication is key. If you’re going to work from home, you need to be able to communicate with people and document things.

PM me if you’re interested in more details.

Mods: Please delete this if it is out of line.

Options other than my ISP's DNS?

I am in the process of reading up on VPN’s and in doing so, stumbled upon the importance of having altered DNS servers. As of now, my DNS server is provided by my ISP, and I would like to change this. In addition, I would like to begin using a VPN, but that is a topic for another day.

Does anyone have any particular recommendations when choosing another DNS? I am running OpenSuse 13.1, not that it matters. Thank you in advance; any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Low-maintenance split horizon DNS?

Currently several of our main domain names are manually replicated into our corporate windows DNS servers from our api-less DNS provider.

As you can imagine, over the years we’ve got loads of discrepancies between both zones, records existing on one side but not the other which is pain.

I’ve started to shift domains to existing externally only and removing our internal zones where possible, which has some success, but the exception to this is where we actually want record asymmetries, these are where we have private routes to various services we’d rather use internally.

I’ve actually mostly dealt with this issue via planning to keep only a single zone internally, On this zone I’ve created which exists both internally and externally. Externally it points to the public IP, internally it points to the corresponding internal routed IP.

So when I have a website I want to use different routes I create a CNAME for to which then handles the split routing without me having to host the zone internally.

The problem is that I’m left not knowing how to route because of how you can’t CNAME the root record.

How should I fix this issue?
