DNS Me

Posted in Commentary at 12:03 pm by Michael Sweeney Media

For those of us have struggled with BIND in the recent past, the DNS Enabler from our new best buddies, Cutedgesystems, is very cool way to set up a buzzword compliant DNS server on OSX. I’ve spoken of Cutedgesystems before, with their Mail Enabler, and this new tool is just as nice. It takes less than 2 minutes to configure a DNS server on a Mac using OSX. So now I have a Postfix server and a DNS server running on my Mini. And it ROCKS!! small, quiet and stable, everything you want from infrastructure devices on your network. I’m running it in simple terms, plain old DNS but I plan to experiment some with it for dual MX records and other neato stuff that DNS can do.

You can see from the screenshot that the enabler is a single screen. It’s very straightforward and easy to get rolling, you type in the domain name, forwarders if needed and the hosts. Click on “run dns” and call it a day. So can’t Windows do this? Never mind, ..
