set up my own DNS Server

Postby pooshpa » Tue Oct 19, 2010 5:33 pm

How can I set up my own DNS Server? I'm planning on starting a new DNS server so I can host my own domains. I have searched a few sites on how to do it... But most our windows servers... I will be using a Linux server (CentOS) for the web server... Is it possible to use Windows Server as the DNS Server and link to Linux as the web server?

Of course, DNS has (despite windows' strange AD modifications) no preferred servers, and linux is by far the most commonly used server for dns.
Do you want the dns to be public or private?
Both can be accomplished by using bind on linux.
If you install the 'Optware' package, you can install a lot of standard linux programs from a SSH session.
You can find a dns server with ipkg list | grep bind.
Then it's just to install it with ipkg install xxx, and then configure bind. There are a lot of info on the net about how to do that.
