SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

1) how do I get wildcard dns working? I thought I had my zone file set up right to do this, but it never works. here's one of my bind zones:
(sorry if the formatting messed it up)
;Begin of file /var/named/kitsapbands.zone
@ IN SOA ns1.kitsapbands.com. postmaster.kitsapbands.com. (
2000032701 ; Serial
300 ; Refresh - 5 Minutes
60 ; Retry - 1 minute
1209600 ; Expire - 2 Weeks
43200) ; Minimum - 12 Hours
IN NS ns1.kitsapbands.com.
IN MX 10 mail.kitsapbands.com.
IN A 126.96.36.199
www IN A 188.8.131.52
mail IN A 184.108.40.206
ns IN A 220.127.116.11
ftp IN CNAME wwww.kitsapbands.com.
Do I just need to add "* IN A 18.104.22.168" somewhere?
2) is it possible to have BIND accept any domain name that points to it (ie: no need to set up a zone file every friggen time) and just have every domain that points to it point to the server it's on (my name server is my main server right now). I'm sure there must be some security risks involved in doing something like this if it is possible.
3) I thought I had my server set up as the master name server (at least for my server), but every time I run dig it tries to get to the first server on the subnet. The main server on the subnet has my zone file for one site, but not the other, so I'm getting trouble like this:
;; Query time: 2 msec
;; SERVER: 22.214.171.124#53(126.96.36.199)
;; WHEN: Sun Oct 5 13:56:19 2003
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 29
Both zone files for the sites are almost the same, but the second one isn't being found (probably because it's not checking my server for it). The site still resolves from the outside (ie: digitsu.net can still be accessed just fine by name), but when I try to send out mail from that domain it says it doesn't exist (I assume because of this problem found with dig).
HELP! (sorry to squish all these questions into one post, but I thought it better then having 3 posts about BIND)
