Title: Is DJBDNS still good for IPV6?
Post by: rainer_d on August 29, 2011, 10:34:22 PM
Hi,

as most people who run a DNS, we're thinking how to move to IPV6.

Does anybody run NicTool + DJBDNS with IPV4+IPV6?

Does DJBDNS + ipv6-patch from the FreeBSD port do everything that is needed?

Or should I just use one of the export-scripts and go for BIND9 or NSD?

I've been running a NicTool server with DJBDNS since 2007 and it never created problems.
But we're only running IPV4 there...

Since I run my DNS server inside a jail, with a loopback IPv4 address, I plan to just add IPv6 addresses to an external interface and then map them to the IPv4 DNS server via a PF rule. Then I don't need any special IPv6 support in the DNS server, other than the ability to publish the record, which tinydns already has.
