1.2 Finding More Information About DNS and BIND

1.2.1 Problem

You can't find information you need about the Domain Name System or BIND in this book.

1.2.2 Solution

For much more complete coverage of DNS theory and a step-by-step approach to setting up BIND name servers, pick up a copy of DNS and BIND, this book's close cousin.

For BIND configuration or operational problems, search the archives of one of the newsgroups or mailing lists on BIND:

For information on the Domain Name System, you should look for relevant RFCs at http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfcsearch.html or you can search Google's archive of the newsgroup comp.protocols.std.dns, which is located at http://groups.google.com/groups?as_ugroup=comp.protocols.dns.std&hl=en. You might also check the BIND section of the Internet Software Consortium's web site, at http://www.isc.org/products/bind/.

1.2.3 Discussion

This list is far from comprehensive; there's lots of information about DNS and BIND available on the Internet. If you don't find what you're looking for at one of the places mentioned here, use a good search engine to track down what you're looking for.

1.2.4 See Also

"Handy Mailing Lists and Usenet Newsgroups" in Chapter 3 of DNS and BIND.
