Export from nictool to bind

Has anyone done a script yet to export to BIND rather than djbdns. I'm asking as *my* server runs nictool and djbdns but the secondary nameserver (over which I have no control) runs BIND 8 (and he won't change).  So I have two choices, either drop nictool (after 2 weeks of blood, sweat and tears I'd rather not) and go with BIND or beg and plead and cajole with someone to write me a script that will allow me to update the secondary BIND server (using flatfiles). please?


forum search for 'bind' in the subject brings us this post with said script:

I've yet to try it.

Hi LogicX, thanks for the reply. I utilized that script already to export my BIND flatfiles from BIND to Nictool (ie import into Nictool). I'm looking for one that operates the same as install.pl but that exports from Nictool to BIND.
My setup is as follows:
NS1:  Nictool to djbdns via rsync|ssh (although both on same server), Gentoo OS
NS2:  BIND 8, FreeBSD

What I need to do is to be able to generate flatfiles (ie the standard BIND 8 zone files) from Nictool to be able to rsync these with NS2. I tried setting it up in Nictool as an external server using BIND but that does nothing.

Eiher that or does someone know of another company that will do secondary ns for me.
